Spicy Harissa Grilled Chicken Breast

Enjoy the delectable tastes of Harissa Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes, a meal that mixes succulent chicken breast with tangy Harissa sauce and fragrant herbs. This recipe makes enough for a tasty and filling supper for four people. To make this delectable delicacy, just follow these easy steps.

Make sure your oven is set up for cooking by preheating it to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take 20 ounces of chicken breast and season it with sea salt, pepper, cumin, ground rosemary, and harissa sauce. If you decide to add more spices, remember to consider the salt content while adjusting the amount.

Spray some coconut oil in a cast iron pan and heat it up over medium-high heat. The seasoned chicken breasts should be seared for three to five minutes on each side, or until they get a gorgeous golden brown hue.

Then, include roughly 15 cherry tomatoes and a fresh rosemary sprig in the pan. These ingredients give the meal a delicious scent and a blast of sweetness.

For 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the breasts, bake the chicken in the preheated oven after transferring it from the skillet. Ensure that the chicken is well cooked and has reached a safe internal temperature.

After the chicken has finished cooking, remove it from the oven and give it some time to rest. The meat is able to maintain its softness and juiciness during this resting period.

As a main meal, serve the Harissa Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes and your choice of sides, such as roasted vegetables or a crisp salad.

This recipe will definitely excite your taste buds with its spiciness from the Harissa, aromas from the herbs, and luscious roasted tomatoes. A dinner that is incredibly gratifying and likely to wow is made possible by the marriage of tastes and textures. Enjoy this recipe for Harissa Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes for its powerful and bright taste!
