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.

I loved this recipe! made it for me and my boyfriend, added an extra tsp of harrisa paste for a bit more spice, roasted mushrooms, tomatoes and red onion with it, and made the new potatoes with lemon and rocket which was yummy!

Delicious! And so simple and easy to make. I cut up different veg; mushrooms, courgette , peppers and added these to the roasting aswell. Very tasty, will be making it 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.

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