Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (400° F - gas 6)

Method

  1. Mix the Rose Harissa paste with the honey.
  2. Peel the skin from the chicken and cut lots of deep slashes in the flesh. Generously cover both sides with the Harissa and honey mix.
  3. Use my Lock and Lock box trick to make life easier (see pics).
  4. Leave to marinade for a few hours if you have the time.
  5. Place in a baking dish on a bed of sliced onions, seasoned with salt, pepper and olive oil.
  6. Cook on middle shelf for 25-35 minutes.
  7. While the chicken is cooking, mix the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and mustard in a bowl.
  8. Combine the carrots and the avocado, and stir in the dressing. Finish with some almonds.
  9. Take the chicken out of the oven and serve with the salad, warm flatbread and a generous dollop of houmous.

Chef's notes

I have not yet tried the Belazu rose harissa paste yet, but it cannot be a strong as my harissa paste recipe. Half a pot of that would put you in hospital for a month!
