Skillet Moroccan Chicken Pie with all recipes

Skillet Moroccan Chicken Pie
Why this recipe works. To give this simple skillet pot pie a Moroccan twist, we add northern African ingredients and flavors to a basic ground chicken mixture. The key here is properly hard cooking the eggs. To do this, we place the eggs in a saucepan with 2 quarts of water and bring it to a boil. We then remove the pan from the heat, cover it, and let the eggs steep for 10 minutes before pouring out the water and for shaking the pan back and forth to crack the shells. We then transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to stop them from cooking before peeling them.

Ingredients: serve 4

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 ½ cups slivered almonds
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
2 onions, chopped
¼ teaspoon saffron threads
1 ½ pounds ground chicken
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro salt and pepper
4 hard cooked eggs, sliced into ½ inch rounds
6 (14 by 9 inch) sheets phyllo dough, thawed
2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

  1. Adjust oven rank to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Heat oil in large ovensafe skillet over medium heat until just shimmering. Add almonds and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and transfer to bowl, leaving oil in pan. Toss almonds with cinnamon and sugar
  2. Add onions and saffron to empty skillet and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add chicken and cook, breaking meat apart with wooden spoon until fully cooked, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn off heat, stir in cilantro, and season with salt and pepper. Top chicken mixture with eggs and sprinkle with 1 cup almonds.
  3. Lay phyllo sheet on work surface, long side facing you. Brush sheet with butter. Place another sheet on top of first sheet, slightly askew, and brush with butter. Place another sheet on top of first sheet, slightly askew, and brush with butter. Repeat process with remaining phyllo. Place phyllo stack on top of filling, trucking outside edges into skillet. Sprinkle with remaining almonds. Transfer  skillet to oven and cook until phyllo is golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve

Easy Moroccan Chicken Pie
Once the chicken mixture has been cooked and seasoned, place an even layer of hard cooked egg slices on top, and then sprinkle with 1 cup of the cinnamon sugar almonds. Brush butter between each layer of 6 phyllo dough sheets, rotating each sheet to form a pinwheel. Fit phyllo stack over top of chicken filling
