Harissa Chicken Wings

Visit my other site, For The Wing, for all things chicken-wing!

After making roasted harissa cauliflower the other day (my first encounter with harissa) I knew after the first bite that the next thing I was going to make with the spicy red pepper paste would be Harissa chicken wings. There was no doubt in my mind that I was in for a wonderful treat. You get a nice kick, but don’t be afraid. Harissa is not crazy spicy, not at all. It has a wonderful earthy flavor to it. I could eat it all day, On wings I could eat it all week.

Harissa can be found in the Mediterranean section of your local grocery store. I haven’t tried making it home yet, but I will. The consistency reminds me a bit of hummus, though it’s certainly not hummus. But, oh…. it just hit me… harissa sure would be great in hummus! I’m off to try that now!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.
