Sometimes, a delicious dinner comes from a simple spiced grilled chicken recipe. If you feel like working on your grilling skills, then you must try this Moroccan-styled marinated chicken recipe for your next family meal.
You can’t go wrong with grilled meats. It is always a great choice for picky eaters who want to enjoy a great meal. Pair this up with roasted potatoes or piping hot white rice for an awesome dining experience.
Marinating the chicken drumsticks with different flavors will increase its flavor profile. Marinating the drumsticks for 24 hours is the perfect amount of time to have a flavorful and tasty grilled chicken. If you are running out of time, then just 10-15 minutes will also work.
Bone-in chicken thighs are also a great idea to use in this recipe. They have a higher fat content than the other chicken parts. Can’t find harissa paste in supermarkets? You may use sriracha or hot sauce as a substitute.
You may want to dip these delicious grilled chicken in a creamy caramelized onion rémoulade — which would balance out the spiciness of the harissa.
Pair this well-seasoned spiced grilled chicken with an ice-cold low-alcohol white wine. Check these recommended white wines:
- Sauvignon Blanc
