    Chilicat's Note:

    This is from - posted in answer to a request for the Moroccan chicken recipe from Brix restaurant in Denver. Harissa is a spicy sauce from North Africa which adds heat to the marinade and tastes great drizzled over both the chicken and the couscous. The chicken needs to marinate overnight, so plan accordingly.

      Very nice marinade. I used a vertical chicken roaster on the grill and a much larger chicken than on the recipe. I think I will try it the next time quartered, as recommended, so the flavor can get into the meatier parts.

      This was the starring attraction at our "Moroccan Meal" for the ZWT No. Africa/Middle East Challenge. I sort of mis-read (messed up) the marinade (added the half-cup along with the 2 T.), but that only improved it (as far as we were concerned)...and I poured off the excess oil later anyway. to the couscous. I am a ditz! I had quinoa....but we LOVED the whole effect. My (usually bland) 15 yo DS said this was a 5-star recipe, the other three eaters said 4-stars. So...this spicy meal was a very BIG departure for our little German family! *Made for ZWT 3 No. Africa Challenge ~ Moroccan Meal*
