Harissa Chicken Dinner

Harissa Chicken Dinner Recipe - I’m sure by now you know how much I love harissa paste and sauce. So, it’s no surprise that it is the main component of this incredibly easy one-skillet dish. Harissa paste is very similar to the chili garlic paste “sambal” and they can easily work as substitutes for one another. Harissa tends to be a little earthier in flavor because it includes spices such as cumin and coriander. If you can’t find or make harissa paste, you can use harissa sauce, which is definitely easier to find in most grocery stores and online.
