EASY Harissa Chicken Recipe


Easy Harissa Chicken Recipe

Have you heard of Saffron Road?  They have been putting out lots of great coupons recently and I fell in love with their simmer sauces after I made Moroccan Beef Tagine with Sweet Potatoes earlier this year with their Tagine sauce.

Back when I posted about their Tagine simmer sauce they only had 4 sauce options available, but now they have 8 different ones!  I tried out the Harissa simmer sauce this time and it was amazing.

All of the Saffron Road simmer sauces are very easy to use to dress up just about any meat dish or even any vegetarian dish.

Here are a few more things that I love about Saffron Road:

  • All of their livestock are humanely raised and are never given any antibiotics or hormones.
  • Their founders are organic food pioneers who support the natural food movement.
  • They support family owned farms and local growers.
  • Saffron Road has 12 certified Gluten Free Products.
  • Saffron Road is enrolled in the Non-GMO Project.
  • I can pronounce all of the ingredients in the sauces.  That’s kind of my general rule of thumb when I’m considering adding a new food to what we regularly eat.  I look at the ingredient list and make sure that there’s nothing there that I can’t pronounce.  That rule doesn’t catch EVERYTHING that’s “bad”, but it sure catches most of it!
  • I love that it’s in a pouch and not in a can (since I don’t like to use cans lined with BPA and heated to high temperatures to seal)

The simmer sauces are regularly priced right around $2.99 each AND there’s a $1 off Saffron Road coupon available to print too!

This time I wanted to try something super simple and let the flavors of the simmer sauce stand out on their own.

I had some chicken legs so I sprinkled a little salt and pepper on them and lightly browned them on all sides.

Then I added the packed of Harissa simmer sauce and two cups of water.

The best Chicken Harissa recipe!

I let it all simmer for a good 45 minutes to an hour until the chicken was thoroughly cooked.

You can leave it just like it is when it comes out of the skillet (like the picture at the very top of the post), or you can add yogurt or sour cream to the sauce to tone down the spiciness a little (it’s actually not very spicy, I’m just a wimp when it comes to spicy food).
