Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into ½-inch-thick slices.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
In a medium bowl, combine the carrots, ras el hanout, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand while you prepare the chicken.

2

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.

3

Cook the vegetables

In the same pan used for the chicken, if dry, add 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Warm over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown and soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onion and sugar snap peas, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften and the snap peas are crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the chicken and vegetables to individual plates. Drizzle the chicken with as much green harissa as you like and serve any remaining harissa on the side.
