Cook something – Angry Harissa Chicken Wings

The Real Meal Revolution is soon to publish an exciting new cookbook with recipes created only from Green List ingredients.

Here’s one of them:

Angry Harissa Chicken Wings


Harissa paste

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (roughly chopped)
  • 1 tbsp red chilli (deseeded and chopped)
  • 1 tsp ground caraway seeds
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50 g tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 handful fresh coriander

To make the angry chicken wings

  • 800 g chicken wings
  • 30 ml olive oil (for drizzling)


    Harissa paste

    1. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan or frying pan. Once the coconut oil is warm but not too hot, add the garlic, chilli, caraway, cumin, coriander and salt.
    2. Gently fry the ingredients in the oil until they become fragrant (probably about three or four minutes)
    3. Add in the tomato paste and sauté it gently for a few more minutes
    4. Remove them from the heat and scrape the contents of the pan into a narrow container (the jug that comes standard with a stick blender is a great option)
    5. Now, add to this mixture the sweet paprika and the fresh coriander and blend with a stick blender.

    To make the angry chicken wings

    1. Preheat your oven to 200°C
    2. Mix the harissa and the wings well, with your hands in a mixing bowl.
    3. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack, on top of a roasting tray and place them in the oven for 30 minutes.
    4. Once they’re cooked, arrange them on a serve platter and serve them with any yogurt dip
