Simple yet beautiful! Added some garlic and onion. Will definitely be making this again!

Really simple and tasty, the chicken was perfectly moist. I used more harissa than the recipe suggested.

For some reason rating is wrong, meant to give it 5*.

Made this a couple of times now, using lemon Harissa pasta and adding extra veg to the tray (peppers, courgettes etc). Real favourite and a delicious, quick supper. Served with roasted sweet potato.

Absolutely delicious! I cubed the chicken, and used a pack of olives with feta. Took much longer than the 15mins, I ended up cooking for 45mins, but despite this, the chicken was lovely and moist still. The feta had all but disappeared so next time will add 40 mins in. Will definitely be cooking this again, maybe adding mushrooms and red peppers to bulk it out (less carbs than potatoes!). Would also be fab with brown rice.

I made this last night, and I have to say it was just fantastic. Beautifully moist chicken breast, punchy flavours and perfect for a hot summer evening. Served it with the bruised potatoes and olive oil that comes with the suggestion. Perfect, easy and very tasty! Give it a go!!! Can't wait to do it again! X

Really, really nice!The harissa goes very well with the chicken!! I normally have a couscous and sweetcorn salad on the side from a different recipe and the whole thing is just delicious!!!!

Couldn't be easier to make and perfect for a week night after work. The cherry tomato and olive mix works really well but I have made this several times now and used whatever vegetables I had. Delicious and highly recommended.

It was ok - pleasant, but not something I will be making again. I marinated the chicken in the harissa for a couple of hours, and served with roasted sweet potatoes, courgettes and peppers. It was alright, but it wasn't particularly enjoyable.
