Tunisian Chicken Wings With Oranges

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by susie cooks

This recipe uses a classic Tunisian spice mix called Harissa. I see that there are quite a few recipes her for Harissa. I know that they sell it at Whole Foods. It is very hot. To balance the heat, add some blood orange quarters. Cherry tomatoes would also work. This recipe comes from a cookbook called The African and Middle Eastern Cookbook.

I know you may think the harissa is hot, when tasted on a spoon, but do not be afraid to use a lot in this recipe. Otherwise, the wings will be relatively flavorless. I would never think to grill oranges, but they went very well with these wings. Made for ZWT 6.
