Adapted beautifully to the grille! Marinated the chicken for a couple hours in the harissa & oregano. Tossed the tomatoes, olives, and a quartered red onion in the olive oil with salt & pepper. Grilled everything as we like in or family, served with a little cous-cous/bulgar salad and it was lovely. I'm not giving this 5 stars because the directions need to be fixed - it's been here for how many years and it still says roast for 5 minutes at the start? That is ridiculous. The recipe is lovely and simple but that is certainly a typo.

Quick and tasty. Left chicken in for about 25 mins and it was perfect, so definitely leave it in for longer than 15! Served this with couscous instead of potatoes and was delicious!

This recipe is way out on the cooking time which is why I have given it a 2-star rating. It took at least 45 minutes for the chicken to cook through properly. I would advise adding the tomatoes and olives only when you are sure the chicken is cooked through otherwise you will end up with tomatoey mush.

I love this recipe. It's quick, easy, and flavourful. It's also really healthy. I'm following Weight Watchers and this is low in points for me but tastes so good!

A really simple and tasty dish. I agree with the comments below that it needs cooking for longer than the stated time. I cooked the chicken in foil for 30mins, before unwrapping and adding the tomatoes & olives for a final 10mins; the chicken was moist and tasted great. I also added slightly more Harissa than stated, and served together with the Skinny Carrot Fries recipe that you can find on this site. Will definitely be making both dishes again!

Does this recipe need pre-cooked chicken? The meat was uncooked and needed an extra half an hour.

Excellent! I omitted the olives as we don't like them. I also increased the cooking time to 15 mins before adding the tomatoes.

Did you recover with foil paper after throwing in tomotoes?

My husband made this, it was amazing! I don't like olives so he used mushrooms instead and served it with baked potatoes flavoured with butter, oregano and peri-peri salt. Sooo good!

absolutely delicious recipe, lovely, healthy, fresh flavors. I've served once with cous cous and once with brown rice. I also seperately roasted some butternut squash which went deliciously with the chicken. it definitely needs longer 15mins though! oh and I went with the other tips on here and used double the harrisa. I bet this would be nice with salmon?

This was nowhere near being cooked in 15 minutes. Allow 30 minutes at least and possibly 40 depending on the size of your chicken breasts
