MainRecipesChicken | Harissa-Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas

   Harissa-Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas submitted by Mom Johnson
Tangy yogurt and harissa, a Tunisian chile and spice paste (see homemade recipe if you can't find this paste in your local market) make an unusual chicken dish.

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, harissa, lemon juice, 1 tsp. salt and several grinds of pepper. Add the chicken, turning to coat. Chill, covered for 4-8 hours

Remove from the frig about 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees with rack set in the upper third of the oven. In a bowl, combine the chickpeas, onion and carrots. Season lightly with salt and pepper and toss to blend. Make a bed of the vegetables in a 9x13 inch pan. Set the chicken with the marinade on top of the vegetables, skin-side-up. Bake until the chicken is deeply browned about 45 minutes. (It may even be charred in some spots.)

Transfer chicken to a warm plate; stir the vegetables and add a little water if they seem too dry. Bake about 10 minutes longer until tender. Stir in 1/3 cup fresh cilantro. Serve chicken with vegetables.
