976bar,

Where did you find this dish?

I googled "Chicken Ballista" and found a single entry, referring to some sort of Morrocan pie...

Doh! I misspelled it.

This time I found the recipe you posted from some other forum, but still no other references to it other than the recipe. Is it a BIR dish?
