Harissa, a rich fiery red Mediterranean garlic chili paste, adds bold flavor to grilled and roasted meat and seafood, sauces, pasta, sandwiches, soups and condiments. For this recipe we marinated bone-in chicken breasts in a blend of harissa, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice and slow roasted until tender and juicy. If desired, accompany with the enclosed recipe for cucumber yogurt sauce seasoned with toasted cumin seed. Harissa roast chicken tastes delicious served with couscous pilaf and garlic and olive oil-roasted vegetables.
Foodie Byte: Add a dollop of Mediterranean Harissa to mayonnaise for a spicy sandwich condiment or dipping sauce for grilled vegetables, crispy chicken tenders, wings or oven baked fries.
