Barbecued free-range chicken with Yalla Harissa

1 x 1.2kg jointed free-range chicken

150g Yalla Harissa

100ml olive oil

4 x Tomatoes diced (1cm pieces)

1 Spanish onion, finely diced

1 x medium size cucumber diced (1cm pieces)

1 x small bunch of flat leaf parsley coarsely chopped

1 x iceberg lettuce roughly chopped

2 x lemons (one for juicing and one to cut into wedges)



1.      Rub half a tub Yalla Harissa paste over all the pieces of jointed chicken. Place in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil over the meat. Cover and leave to marinade for 45 minutes but remember to occasionally the turn the meat. When you start cooking, do not throw away the marinade just yet.

2.      Take a large bowl and mix the diced tomatoes, Spanish onion, cucumber, parsley and iceberg lettuce

3.      You will need the barbecue or grill to its highest temperature before you start cooking. Cook the chicken on high heat for a few minutes. Turn the meat constantly to prevent burning. Once the meat is golden brown lower the heat and cook for another 10-15 minutes to cook the meat through. Brush meat with remaining marinade a few minute before you finish cooking.

4.      Arrange the chicken on a serving plate with lemon wedges. Dress the salad with olive oil, lemon juice, season with salt and pepper. Serves about 4 people
