This sauce is made with top of the line ingredients, all real ingredients I must add, and it is extremely versatile. You can add add this sauce pretty much onto anything that requires some spicy component. I also made this Harissa beef burgers the other day and they were juicy and extremely tasty.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 8 servings

Total Time: 4 hours



Mixed the spices, cumin, coriander, cardamon and cinnamon. Toss the chicken in the spices. Add the chicken to the slow cooker followed by the rest of the ingredients reserving the chick peas, olives and raisins for later on.

Set the slow cooker on high and cook the chicken for 3 hours. After the 3 hours add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for another hour on high.

Serve over some brown rice, couscous or quinoa.

NOTE: I added 3 tsp of arrowroot powder mixed with two tablespoons of water to thicken my sauce the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. You can also use cornstarch instead of arrowroot powder.

  7. I’ve never cooked with Harissa before, so I’d have to do some research before using it. But it sounds delicious!
