Harissa Chicken

by Christine Tura on March 30, 2016

If you think that eating healthy is a chore, then think again. Fellow gluttons, let us show you how eating healthy becomes painlessly delicious with this dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and paleo-friendly recipe - the Harissa Chicken and see for yourself!


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp harissa
  • 1 Tbsp warm water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. For the rub, put 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a ramekin and add a tablespoon of warm water to help it melt. 
  2. Add in 1 tablespoon of harissa and incorporate it. Harissa is an amazing North African blend of spices such as coriander, cumin, salt, chili, garlic, black pepper, cardamom and cloves. This is more of a "omg you have to try this" than a "recipe" per se. 
  3. Pat dry and cube your chicken. Throw it all in a plastic bag, mix in the harissa oil and shake it up. Make sure you cover each and every piece of chicken, or whatever else you'd like to use instead. Put it in the refrigerator for at least an hour to absorb the flavors. 
  4. Once it's ready, put your pan over medium heat and add your other tablespoon of coconut oil. Toss in the chicken and that's it. Super straight-forward, and super delicious. Pair it with our cauliflower rice or zucchini pasta for the perfect meal!
