Trader Joe's want to help consumers take their taste buds on a trip to North Africa with its new Harissa Flavored Chicken Thighs.
For those unfamiliar, harissa is a hot chili pepper paste made from roasted red peppers, Baklouti peppers or serrano peppers, olive oil, and a flavorful blend of spices and herbs. Now, Trader Joe's has taken the bold and spicy flavor of harissa and paired it with the brand's boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Trader Joe's has even put its own spin on the recipe with a version of harissa that "includes tomato paste with dried red pepper, parsley, paprika, cumin, and garlic, with some citrus brine to give it a touch of tang and a slight sweetness."
Best of all, preparing Trader Joe’s Harissa Flavored Chicken Thighs is as simple as roasting them in the oven for 20 minutes or plopping them on the grill.
