Moroccan Chicken Rfissa:
Moroccan Chicken Rfissa; A fabulous Moroccan dish of stewed chicken, lentils and onions served on a bed of shredded Msemen, trid pastry or bread. A fragrantly seasoned broth is poured over all.
There are some Moroccan foods that are so good. You’ll never find them on a restaurant menu. Trid is one of those dishes. The simple ingredients of chicken and lentils are elevated with the inclusion of spices and a slow cooking time – until everything falls apart.
Trid is a special dish that is typically made around the time when women give birth. The ingredients are said to replenish what her body loses in childbirth and is rich in nutrients. In Morocco, we also serve trid to celebrate the end of the first half of Ramadan then served with a very big feast in the evening.
