  • Summary

    B'Steeya is served throughout much of North Africa on special occasions; it's layered with buttery phyllo dough and finished with a dusting of sugar and cinnamon. We used ginger, saffron-spiced chicken, and sugared almonds in the filling for our version.

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole roaster chicken, about 4 pounds, cut into 8 pieces
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/8 teaspoon crumbled saffron
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, plus 1/2 cup melted (1 1/2 sticks total)
    • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 1 3/4 cups blanched whole almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1/4 cup orange-flower water
    • 1 package (17 ounces) store-bought phyllo dough
