A note about serious food allergies

Harissa hails from North Africa, the word deriving from the Arabic word “harasa,” meaning to break apart. (They had to break apart the peppers to make the harissa.) This meal doesn't “break apart” so much as it comes together in beautiful flavor and harmony. Harissa gets combined with cooling sour cream and bright lemon, elevating the chicken from delicious to amazing. Break apart this meal to find any imperfections, and you'll find yourself coming up short!

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using salmon, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of pepper. Follow same instructions as chicken in Step 3, cooking, skin side up first, until golden brown and salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  • If using ribeye, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1 and 3, cooking undisturbed until browned and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower into bite-sized pieces. Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate. Zest and halve lemon lengthwise. Juice one half and cut other half into wedges. Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Cauliflower

    Combine cauliflower, garlic salt, white portions of green onions, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl until cauliflower is coated. Transfer cauliflower to prepared baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Reserve bowl; no need to wipe clean. Roast in hot oven until tender, 10-12 minutes. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Transfer cauliflower to reserved mixing bowl and add butter and green portions of green onions. Stir until butter is melted and combined. While cauliflower roasts, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from burner. Remove chicken to a plate. While chicken cooks, make sauces.

  4. 4

    Make Harissa Sauce and Lemon Sour Cream

    In another mixing bowl, combine harissa, half the sour cream, ½ tsp. lemon juice (reserve remaining of both for lemon sour cream), 1 tsp. water, and a pinch of salt. Set aside. Combine remaining sour cream, lemon zest, 1 tsp. remaining lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in another mixing bowl. Set aside.

  5. 5
