Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken + Veggies with Lemon Aioli

Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken + VeggiesTHIS Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken + Veggies, you guys! It was one of those that as I put it in the oven I was thinking, well darn, I really hope this isn’t a fail…but, boy was I wrong! It is a total winner winner chicken dinner! Like, really freaking good. My husband ooh-ed and ahh-ed over it the entire time he ate it. I have a feeling it’s going to be a new go-to!

The best part about it? It’s so easy my 4-year-old could make it. Well, maybe not the chopping the veggies with a sharp knife part…but other than that, it’s as easy as can be. I love the warm flavors of curry and cumin, along with the oh-so-tasty kick from the harissa. 

Speaking of harissa, you all have probably seen me use Mina Harissa in many of my dishes before. It is definitely a condiment that is always in my fridge, ready to elevate any dish I please. I keep it simple and add it on top of grilled protein or fish OR I sometimes get a little festive with it and add it to sauces like my Bang Bang Sauce that I made in my Bang Bang Shrimp Lettuce Wraps. And, as I did here with this fantastic Sheet Pan Harissa Chicken + Veggies. It adds so much flavor and I especially love that it only has 6 simple, clean ingredients. No added junk. Just like I like my food! 

So go, get yourself some Mina Harissa and make this sheet pan meal asap. Trust me on this one.

    do you think I could prep everything and just put in a bag and freeze and then thaw and bake later?

    Would you cook it for the same amount of time using boneless skinless chicken thighs?

      Hi Katelyn,
      Boneless, skinless thighs will cook more quickly– approximately 25 minutes i’d say.

    OMG THIS IS DELICIOUS!! Super super easy to throw together. Was able to prep it all while the oven preheated. Swapped the thighs for breasts and did as suggested in another comment of cooking the veggies first for 10min and then added the chicken for the final 20min. This was a meal the whole family enjoyed – this includes our 3yo and 5yo. Don’t skip the aioli. Brings it all together!

    I LOVED this. I couldn’t find harissa so I went without it, and it was amazing. I also added raisins to the sheet for a bit of sweetness.

    I am not the biggest fan of chicken thighs. Would breasts work instead?

      Yes, but they will only take like 20 minutes to cook through so keep an eye on them. I’d roast the veggies for 10 mins, add the breasts and toss the veggies, go back in oven for 20 more mins.

    Do you think it’s possible to make this just using a harissa seasoning spice mix (organic by Frontier Co-op)? My local whole foods didn’t have that specific harissa…

      Yes! I’d just add the harissa seasoning when you do the curry powder and cumin. I’d do 1 tbsp. of it. It won’t be the exact same but all the flavors will still taste great!
