      one of the best and easiest recipes for Moroccan-style chicken pie i've seen on recipezaar. i followed the directions but didn't have the saffron thread and it turned out great. i'm going to make it again but probably decrease the amount of powdered sugar that i put between each phyllo sheet- just to make it that much healthier and a little less sweet. it was great though!
