Grilled Harissa Chicken Breast is the ideal flavourful recipe to throw on the grill this weekend! Step by step healthy recipe with delicious flavours!



  • 1 tablespoon Harissa spice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast


  1. Prep a grill to medium-high heat and brush grates with oil.
  2. In a small bowl, add all the spices and carefully whisk to thoroughly combine.
  3. Place chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until even in thickness.
  4. Coat each breast with a thick layer of Harissa rub, then place on the grill, evenly spaced, and cook for 4 minutes per side, or until a meat thermometer registers 165 degrees.
  5. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.


Serve on rice or for an even tastier treat, coconut rice like the recipe we have with our Jerk Chicken and Mango Avocado Salsa Recipe.
