Bit disapointed with this dish as it sounded lovely but lacked the punchy flavours I was hoping for. Will not make it again.

Hi Quite a tasty dish. I served it with cous cous which I thought went with it better that potatoes. Chicken deffinitely needed another good 5 mins though

A really quick and easy recipe. The chicken was lovely and moist. I also roasted some peppers and onions. It,s a good way of cooking chicken breast in the oven without it drying out.

I went to my cupboard to get the harissa out only to realise I didn't have any left - replaced it with green pesto and omited the oregano - very very nice. I'm going to get some harissa and try it again. As suggested above I added additional ingredients - cooked courgette, mushrooms, red onion and sweetcorn along with the cherry tomatoes plus I did the butternut squash with garlic (I wasn't to keen on this but my husband and son both loved it).

love this recipe! I didnt have any harissa and used chilli paste! It was sooo yummy! I cooked it in the oven with red onion, pepper and small vine tomatoes and served with crushed new potatoes! So good! Chicken was moist and tasty! A great midweek meal! So quick and easy!

Easy to prepare and tastes delicious. Couldn't find Harissa in any of my local stores so not sure how well used it is. Managed to find it in Waitrose for those who have the same problem. Served with plain rice. Now looking for other Harissa recipes.

Me and my boyfriend had this dish for dinner the other night. It was so simple and quick to make. The spiciness of the chicken was delicious, but it needed a little more time in the oven, I think I had it in for an extra 5 mins.

Next time I'm going to try it with fish instead of chicken.

What a lovely meal. I used calamata olives and added mushrooms & whole baby onions, served with cous cous on the side.

I used more harissa paste than suggested here, and also I used a home made tomato sauce that I happened to have. I served it with noodles and salad. The chicken took longer to cook than the recipe states, but it was worth the wait. Very very easy to do. Will make again.

This recipe was so good. I've never used Harissa and although the jar leaked and made a serious mess of my backpack I would definately use it again!
Was expecting the chicken to be really dry roacting it like that but it was so scrummy.
Served with runner beans and minted new potatoes with a little lemon juice.
Brilliantly easy impressive recipe.

Very easy to prepare, tasted great, but cooked for 20-25 minutes. Have also tried a variant using trimmed lamb steaks and a good pinch of crushed black pepper. Served on a warmed bed of roughly crushed chick peas flavoured with lemon juice, parsley and garlic.

Cooked this several times now, as Holly said, needs longer than 15 mins. serve with crushed new pots with black olives & stirfried mushrooms/spinach with golden onions, G.F.Guide recipe. Roast vegetables also good.

The Harissa paste works SO well. I also kept the cherry toms on the vine which made it look even more impressive.
