What is Harissa

Harissa is a beautiful spice mixture. With distinct earth and nutty tones, it’s got some heat going on because of the chili peppers. Don’t think harissa is going to be difficult to source. It’s a very trendy and really well-known spice mixture in today’s markets.

I have an easy and fabulous recipe for making your own harissa, which is super easy in my cookbook which is available on Amazon! Don’t miss it! It reads like a novelette.

Yield: About 4 folks


  • 7 Tbl. olive oil, divided
  • 6 cups Yukon potatoes, washed, skin on, cut into chunks
  • 2 lbs. chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into about 1 to 1 ½ inch chunks
  • 2 cups sweet onions, French slice
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbl. + 2 tsp. harissa dry seasoning mixture
  • 2 tsp. salt, or to taste
  • 2 cups petite peas, somewhat thawed, previously frozen
  • 1/3 cup Fresh mint, parsley, basil, chopped, loosely packed


In a large heavy deep skillet over medium high heat, put four tablespoons of the oil. Add the potatoes, mix, cover and cook for about 5 minutes.

Move the potatoes to one side of the skillet (or out of the skillet temporarily), add the chicken and onions and pan sear, uncovered, for about 7-9 minutes. Add the garlic and harissa and blend into this mixture.

Reduce heat to medium low. Cover and cook about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the peas, and herb mixture and blend.

Turn heat to simmer. Drizzle on remaining olive oil. Cover and let this mixture ‘steam’ (about 15 minutes) or until the peas are warm. Serve immediately.


If you want more 'broth' in your skillet, add one-half cup of chicken stock after the fresh herbs. Blend and combine.
