Double Spiced Harissa Marinated Chicken
The idea for this Double Spiced Harissa Marinated Chicken recipe came right away when I opened my package from The French Farm. The French Farm was started as a hobby to bring gourmet French foods to the United States for personal use but soon blossomed into a thriving business. They strive to bring many small producer’s products to American consumers and give you the feel of a French market when you browse their online store. I can attest to the fact that it does take me back to the markets and stores of Paris. I enjoyed what little time I spent in the markets but I could have spent many more HOURS browsing. Now I can get that feeling online and I’ll happily head back to the French Farm for more spicy flavor-FULL Harissa Paste.
Back to my Double Spiced Harissa Marinated Chicken recipe though. I chose Harissa Paste because I’d read about the spice paste many times and never had the chance to find it in Alaska. (go figure!) I always like to try new things and I was excited to find something I’d been looking for up here. Once I had it in hand I went searching for a good chicken recipe because we are family that loves spicy chicken recipes. I found several inspiring recipes and kind of mushed them together.
I settled on yogurt marinade because I love the way it makes the chicken tender and juicy. And I opted to add a final Harissa Glaze to give it more of the flavor I was searching for. In the end I think it went together really well and like I said wasn’t TOO spicy. One of the best parts of this recipe is that my kids can take this chicken and make sandwiches or wraps and my husband and I can enjoy it over a salad, it’s versatile!
