Harissa Rose Chicken & Mediterranean Couscous Salad




Harissa Rose Chicken

This Harissa Rose Chicken has some lovely flavours with a little heat. It's juicy and tender, has the crispiest skin, and is packed with flavour from the red pepper harissa paste and seasonings.

Serves 6


  • 12 boneless skin-on chicken thighs
  • 65g Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Harissa Rose
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Sumac
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 30 ml Lemon Juice


  1. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, harissa paste, paprika, sumac, cumin, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, until smooth.
  2. Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture and set aside.
  3. Season the chicken. Generously coat the rest of the harissa seasoning mixture over the chicken and let it rest on a clean plate for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Make sure the seasoning covers the entire whole chicken thigh.
  5. Place the chicken on the preheated BBQ or griddle and grill for 15-20 minutes on each side until nicely charred and cooked through.
  6. Baste the chicken on both sides evenly with the remaining harissa paste during grilling.

Serve with Flatbreads, Tzatziki, shredded lettuce and a wedge of lemon.
