  • Spoon 1 teaspoon harissa sauce under the skin of each thigh, then transfer to an aluminum foil-lined 10x15-inch baking pan. Spread carrots, cauliflower, and potatoes onto the pan. Drizzle evenly with oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • Roast, uncovered, in the preheated oven until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest parts of chicken registers 175 degrees F (80 degrees C), 40 to 55 minutes. Stir vegetables once halfway through.

  • Stir together parsley, garlic, and zest in a small bowl.

  • Toss vegetables with remaining 2 teaspoons harissa sauce. Sprinkle with parsley mixture.

Based on the other review, I cut the veggies smaller and roasted them first for a bit before I added the chicken. I also marinated the chicken with the Harissa (Trader Joe's has the paste) for about an hour but probably needed longer. The Parsely/Orange mixture is a must and finishes this dish with a nice flavor. Overall, it was a nice subtle taste - I probably would've added a it more salt as I would've preferred a more flavorful and more Harissa to the chicken. Read More
