Harissa chicken with agave syrup

Harissa chicken with agave syrup

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

I already posted recently the recipe for homemade harissa. A very spicy sauce from Tunisia that you can easily make yourself. Well, I would have done that, but then you also have to do something with that sauce... A piece of chicken is ideal because it doesn't have too much flavor on its own. At least the fillet we are talking about here. A lean piece of meat with a lot of protein, but could use some extra! Well that worked out very well with this harissa chicken with agave syrup.

In this case I chose chicken fillet because it has slightly less fat than chicken thigh. But it can also be made with wings, drumsticks, or even just smear the inside and outside of the entire chicken. The fresh harissa can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days.

Serve this harissa chicken with agave syrup with some steamed vegetables and some rice, for example. The chicken can of course also be “prepped” for several days. For example, if you make 4 pieces, you can prepare your lunch in containers. Then you can put different vegetables in each container, and you still have a versatile lunch with a different taste each time.
