Tips
We offer two amounts of cinnamon. Ease into Moroccan flavor with 1/4 teaspoon, or use 1/2 teaspoon for authentic taste.
Add 1/4 cup chopped, toasted, blanched almonds or raisins to the chicken mixture for added flavor and texture.
Be quick putting the casserole in the oven so that the dough gets done on the bottom.
