Easy Harissa Roasted Chicken Recipe Will Spice Up Your Life

Roasted chicken is one of my go-to recipes. Most times I go simple, like with my three-ingredient roasted chicken or butter baked chicken, but sometimes spice is what I need in my life. This harissa baked chicken recipe is what to make for dinner to spice up your life.

The chicken may be colorful, but it's not overly spicy – it's just right. You can add some vegetables around the chicken when baking. I added chunks of carrot, which soaked up the flavorful pan drippings and tasted amazing.

Cuisine: Tunisian / American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes to 1 hour
Total Time: 55 minutes to 70 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the harissa paste, olive oil, honey, cumin, smoked paprika and garlic powder in a bowl.
  2. Put the chicken into a baking pan and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Stuff the lemon and garlic cloves inside the cavity.
  3. Cover the chicken with the harissa mixture.
  4. Bake in a preheated 325-degree F oven for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until chicken is cooked through.

I'm with you on roasting a whole chicken, Donna John . In fact, that's what I'm making for dinner tonight. Wish I had harissa so I could try this recipe. Instead, I'm making this one (and will make yours next time!): food: Succulent Roasted Whole Chicken Recipe: A Lemon Herb Baked Chicken Recipe That’s Tender & Juicy
Love the idea of adding vegetables while the chicken is roasting...
