Harissa Chicken is a recipe I have been meaning to make for a long time. This North African chili paste is absolutely delightful. Packed with herbs and spices, harissa is smokey, rich, and extremely fragrant! It’s fantastic with chicken but pairs well with all sorts of dishes. From the moment it hits the pan, you just KNOW you’re in for a treat because the smell is incredible!
Harissa harissa harissa, I’ve wanted to incorporate this flavor for a very long time. It’s unfortunate that I was not able to find some of the classic ingredients to make my own paste, so I must admit it feels like I cheated a little by using a store bought paste. But as with fitness and dieting, a cheat meal once in a while is perfectly okay, right? 🤗 Anyway, I first encountered harissa at a restaurant and the smell is absolutely unforgettable. Try this recipe and you will feel the same!
