Harissa Chicken Soft Tacos

Harissa Chicken Soft Tacos

Posted 2018-09-20 by finyfollow

Tacos are a great standby for when you have left overs and do not want to go to too much trouble.

In this recipe I have used the Middle Eastern spice harissa to give the flavour. I used home made tortillas as someone brought them to me.


Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
350 g chicken thighs - about 3
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ cup coconut milk
1 tbsp harissa
½ lime
Tacos or tortilla
Salad of choice - I used tomato and celery
Half a microwaved potato, cut into cubes
Red capsicum, chopped

Method
  • Rub a bit of the oil into the meat, and then coat with the spices.

  • Heat the remaining oil in a wok or fry pan and brown the chicken for about 5 minutes each side.

  • Remove the chicken and set aside.

  • Add the coconut milk and harissa and stir to combine.

  • Scrape up the chicken bits from the bottom of the pan, and put the chicken back in.

  • Turn the heat to low and cover.

  • Simmer this for about 1 to 1¼ hours or until the chicken is tender and comes apart easily. Check after a while as I had to add some water.


  • Shred the chicken, add the potatoes if using and simmer on low for another 5 or so minutes so that it soaks up all the gravy.


  • Squeeze the lime juice all over.

  • Put the meat mixture in your tacos/tortillas.


  • Add the cut salad, and serve. I used soft tacos/tortillas and baked them for a minute or so, but I think the crisp tacos would also go well.

  • It will last in the fridge for days - the flavours go through the meat more as the days wear on!
