Harissa Roast Chicken

Harissa Roast Chicken is a super simple recipe with just 4 ingredients. Whether you use the recipes for freshly made harissa and raz el hanout or decide to buy them, regardless this is an easy and delicious recipe!

This is a low on effort but high on flavor recipe that won’t keep you in the kitchen for long, but will satisfy your family’s taste buds. I had just made a new batch of harissa. I had run out of harissa many weeks ago and had been missing this spoonful of goodness in my meals and made this chicken as I wanted to use the harissa immediately.

Although you can easily purchase a jar of harissa in any good quality supermarket like Fairway or Whole Foods, I can promise you that once you make your own you will never want to buy another jar again. I have been making my own for 1 1/2 years and won’t be going to store bought ever again. This has now made me a harissa critic. A few weeks ago when I went to Hummus & Pita Co. and had the harissa with my meal, I found it bland with not enough salt and other spices. Before making my own, I would never have been so critical. This is why I rarely order in restaurants food I make myself.

Fast & Easy Dinner

Only four ingredients and salt takes less than 5 minutes of active work with the oven doing the rest – who can complain on this. Although I suggest serving it with Freekeh Date Pilaf, you can just as easily serve it with rice and veggies. If you steam the vegetables and cook the rice in a rice cooker, again you will spend maybe 15 minutes of active cooking time for a complete meal.

With all the flavor in this chicken, no one is going to believe you spent so little time in the kitchen.
