      Combine all ingredients except chicken to make a smooth sauce. Thin with orange juice if needed.

      This is a very good marinade, but we will be making some alterations next time we make it, and we WILL make it again! We would like some salt and a more assertive amount of cinnamon in it, but the harissa and orange is what makes it delicious. We have some extra marinade to try on some fish later in the week. It's not too spicy, so give it a try, you'll like it! We had it with a Moroccan couscous salad and Baby Spinach Salad With Dates & Almonds.

      I knew I'd love this before I made it as I love harissa. I like using orange juice in my marinate and this was perfect. I used boneless chicken thighs and grilled up the chicken and then baked them in the rest of the leftover marinade for a little while to finish cooking. Wonderful recipe. Next time I will try it with legs and baked in the oven. Thank you. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010

      Oh My, did the house smell great while this was cooking. An unusual blend of flavors with the Harissa used your Gabi's Harissa (Moroccan Hot Sauce) Pretty simple and clear directions. I used thighs as that's my favorite and loved the idea of putting the flavor under the skin. The skin baked up lovely and crisp and was enjoyed by all. Served with Asparagus With Lemon-Caper Dipping Sauce and made for a great dinner. Thanks HQ for an unusual and delicious (sp!) dinner that all enjoyed. Made for PAC Fall 08
