This Moroccan dish is usually served at weddings. An authentic bisteeya has almonds & powered sugar inside the pie & dusted on top. My family & I didn't like the sweet flavor so I omitted it from the recipe. The first time you make this recipe it may seem overwhelming because of all the steps but it is well worth it. Having a second pair of hands is a big help when making this dish. I got my 12-yr-old to stir the eggs while I pulled apart the chicken. The second & third time I made it I used my pressure cooker & it cut down the cooking time significantly.
