Chicken potpies are as American as apple pie, but they needn't be as fattening. Instead
a buttery piecrust, cap them with a billowy mound of light mashed potatoes, which
soaks up the flavorful broth in every spoonful.
This savory-sweet Moroccan pie is traditionally made with chicken or pigeon, but we chose turkey instead. Here it's cooked with fragrant ginger, saffron and turmeric before being wrapped in phyllo dough alongside sweetened almonds and eggs whisked with cilantro and parsley.

Replacing the usual puff pastry or piecrust
with delicate sheets of phyllo plays up the delicious filling underneath. Sink in to find poached chicken, sweet carrots, and tender
peas and celery -- all bathed in a light broth instead of butter-heavy sauce. A sprinkle of lively tarragon, a handful of aromatic parsley,
and sauteed garlic and shallots give depth to this wintertime favorite.
