Harissa Chicken Thighs with Roasted Veggies- The Seasonal Junkie

Seriously, this meal is the perfect way to dress up boring old chicken. You may be wondering what harissa is. Well, I’m soooo glad you asked. It can be a spice, paste, marinade, etc… And it’s spicy. Which hello, people of the world! Welcome to The Seasonal Junkie, please expect to spice up your life while your here. Thank you very much!

If you are looking into a harissa recipe be sure to research North African cuisine. My harissa recipe is probably not the most traditional way to make harissa because I added random peppers like chipotle, but it is still very delicious. I used a variety of dried chili, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, smoked paprika, coriander, cumin, and caraway. I adapted from this recipe from Feasting at Home! The result? A spicy little paste that set my soul on fire.

You know I had to sprinkle some drama in there…
