Harissa chicken recipes have a long and storied history dating back to the days of the Ottoman Empire. The dish is said to have originated in Algeria, where it is still a popular street food. It made its way to Tunisia in the 1800s, where it quickly became a staple of Tunisian cuisine. Harissa chicken is typically made with a combination of chili peppers, garlic, cumin, and olive oil, and can be either baked or grilled. The dish is often served with couscous or rice, and is a popular option for entertaining.
To make harissa chicken, start by marinating the chicken in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and harissa paste. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least an hour, or overnight for best results. Once the chicken has marinated, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the marinated chicken onto the baking sheet and bake at 400°F for approximately 20 minutes. Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly, serve with a side of cooked quinoa or couscous, and top with fresh herbs. For an extra spicy kick, add a few extra tablespoons of harissa paste to the finished dish.
