I bought an Israeli spice blend for Harissa and you only need to add oil and/or water to use it as a paste. It smells great and I was searching for some recipes so that I can use it. I came upon this one from an organic website. I will try this with dark meat chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in heavy bottomed pan until hot. Add chopped almonds and cook until golden brown. Remove and set aside to drain on kitchen towel.
  2. Add garlic, onion and chicken to the same pan and sauté for 10 minutes, turning regularly until browned.
  3. Mix together harissa, water, currants, honey, cumin and cinnamon. Add the seasoning mix to the chicken and stir well. Add the chickpeas, cover the pan. Now cook over a medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring regularly. Add more water if necessary.
  4. Steam the couscous for 20 minutes. Remove couscous and crumble between your fingers. Add the butter and fluff up. Serve the chicken over the couscous, topping with the browned almonds.
