This oven roasted Harissa Chicken is quick and easy to make. Chicken marinated in fiery hot harissa along with very few other ingredients and baked to perfection. This one pan dish is flavorful and very delicious. If you have a good spice tolerance than I am sure you are going to bake this more often.
This spicy aromatic condiment is widely used in North African and Moroccan cuisine. It is basically a paste of assorted hot chili peppers,coriander ,caraway,Cumin,garlic and Olive Oil. Sometime Bell peppers,mint or tomatoes are also added. It acts as an excellent marinade for meats. You can add a dollop of this on top of stews or soups too. I mostly use this to marinate meat or fish. I also add this to roasted veggies and mix the veggies to Couscous.
I have added some boiled chickpeas and garlic(I love garlic and never get enough of it) to the roast too. You can also add some Onions,bell peppers, Zucchini to it while roasting too.
You can have this as a meal by itself of serve on a bed of couscous. If you like one bowl meal like us then here is one of our favorite. In a bowl add cooked quinoa,roasted harissa chicken along with chickpeas and veggies, chopped cucumber and some garlic mint yogurt.
Else serve this harissa roasted chicken with some refreshing
