Chef John's tangy lemon and garlic yoghurt marinated chicken is grilled to caramelised perfection and served with a flavourful and spicy harissa yoghgurt sauce.
Wallaceclan - harissa is a North African chili paste. If you don't have it, you could make a paste with 1 t. sriracha or chili garlic sauce, 1 clove of crushed garlic, 1/2 t ground cumin , 1/2 t. ground coriander and 1/2 t. salt. This makes a very moist and flavorful chicken. I marinated for about 6 hours and it was perfect. - 24 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Thank you Chef John. I followed your recipe exactly, except that I used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken (not a fan of bones), and my husband said that this was the best chicken ever. We eat a lot of different chicken breast recipes, so that says a lot. - 03 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Such a nice change from other grilled chicken and so healthy. You can do this marinade with any type of chicken (ie: boneless, skinless breasts or thighs). I didn't even marinate it for more than 1 1/2 hours and it was still delicious! The yogurt harissa (hot sauce) mixture is great with the chicken. I served this chicken with coleslaw. - 07 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
