Chicken Kebab with Harissa

 Delicious, simple, and healthy recipe.  It is great as a lunch or dinner.  It can be made into a gyro or a Shish Tawook recipe.  It is typically Mediterranean.



For the sandwich;

1 tomato cubed

½ an on ion chopped

½ tablespoon of chopped parsley and cilantro.

½ lime squeezed on the chicken


Chicken marinade;

1 chicken breast or two chicken thighs cut into one-inch cubes

2 tablespoons of Mustaphas Harissa

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 teaspoon of cumin

1/3 teaspoon of ginger

½ teaspoon poivron rouge or paprika

2 garlic cloves chopped,

1 tablespoon of parsley

1 tablespoon of cilantro chopped

Salt and pepper to taste 



2 cups of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

 cup fresh lemon juice

¼ cup tahini

2 cloves garlic, chopped.

1/2 teaspoon Mustaphas Harissa

1 ¼ teaspoons coarse salt or sea salt



For Chicken Skewers;

In a small bowl combine Mustaphas Harissa, olive oil, cumin, ginger, poivron rouge or paprika,.  Garlic, parsley, cilantro, salt and pepper.  Add the cubed chicken and let marinade for at least half an hour. 

For Hummus;

Homemade hummus is so easy to make and tastes better than store-bought versions. It just takes some planning, like soaking the garbanzo beans in water overnight.  You can always use canned garbanzo beans.  Plus, by making your own hummus, you control what goes in it—and you save money, too.

Cover garbanzo beans with water, add salt to taste and cook until semi soft.  Drain the garbanzo beans and retain some of the water.  Place chickpeas and reserved liquid in a food processor. Add 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup tahini, well stirred, 2 garlic cloves, chopped, 1/2 teaspoon Mustaphas Harissa, and 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt. Process until smooth.

Spread the hummus on Pita bread, lay the chicken skewers on top of the hummus, add tomatoes, Onions, parsley and Mustaphas Harissa.

Enjoy, and BSaha !
