Moroccan Harissa Chicken

Recipes inspired by the traditional Moroccan Chicken. It is a chicken poached in a tomato and harissa sauce.

What you need:

  1. Chicken whole leg 2 pieces

  2. Galanggal's Harissa Sauce

  3. 1 cup tomato juice (Home made is better or you can also use Tomato passata or Tomato Puree)

  4. 10 pieces dried apricots

  5. A handful of raisin (optional)

  6. 2-3 big onions

  7. 5-10 garlic cloves


1. Rub 2 tbsp of Galanggal's Harissa all over chicken. Put it aside.

2. Unpeel and slice 2-3 big onions.

3. Smash and chop 5-10 garlic cloves.

4. Preheat the pan. Oil the pan up.

5. Put the chicken into the pan. Pan seared the chicken until a browned crust forms.

6. Add onions and garlic. Stir & fry until onions are crispy golden brown.

7. Transfer the chicken (leave the onions) into a plate and let it rest while you are making the tomato sauce.

Add 1 cup of tomato juice and 5 tbsp of harissa sauce in the pan, cooked well with onions and garlic.

Note: If using fresh tomato juice/ passata - do not add water. If using tomato puree - add 100ml water & let it thicken before adding harissa.

9. Add chicken with tomato juice well. Mix well and add apricots and raisin. Cover with a lid and slow cook for 15 to 30 minutes.

10. Finish off with handful of chopped parsley and serve! (I don't have parsley, so I'm using basil)
