The harissa-honey glaze takes these juicy grilled chicken thighs over the top! Since most harissa spice blends have salt already added, there is no need to add any additional, but feel free to adjust to your tastes. Garnish with minced fresh parsley.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine harissa spice blend, lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture over chicken thighs, including under the skin. Refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours. Remove from refrigerator 20 minutes before grilling.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil grate.

  • Place chicken thighs on the hot grill, skin side down, and grill for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the chicken over and grill on the other side for 3 to 4 minutes. Continue flipping every 3 to 4 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 165ºF, about 20 to 25 minutes total. Remove chicken to a plate and cover with foil; let rest for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine harissa seasoning, honey, and melted butter for glaze in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until mixture is heated through and has a thinned consistency, about 10 seconds. Drizzle over chicken and serve.

Cook's Note:

If you are using harissa paste instead of the powdered spice blend, omit the oil when making the chicken rub.

Haven't made anything with harissa spice mix before but I had a lot left over from when my daughter visited so looking for an easy-to-prepare recipe to use up the harissa. Followed recipe exactly as is but instead of grilling I baked it in the oven since it wasn't grilling weather outside. Very tasty with a bit of a kick. Even my son who doesn't care for overly hot spicy foods thought this recipe was a keeper. Definitely will make again but now I'll have to buy more harissa spice mix! Read More

I didn t go in expecting much but this recipe was delicious! I didn t marinade for a long time and I baked the thighs instead but the flavor was still spot on. Even my very picky 11 yr old liked it we ll definitely do it again Read More
