From the Test Kitchen

A coating of our creamy, harissa-spiked sauce results in deliciously bold, smoky flavor for this baked chicken. We’re also serving more of the delectable sauce on the side—perfect for drizzling over the chicken or our hearty salad of warm farro tossed with kale and carrots.

1 Make the sauce & bake the chicken:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Lightly oil the foil.

Transfer half the sauce to a small bowl; set aside for serving. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Add the seasoned chicken to the large bowl of remaining sauce; turn to coat. Place on the sheet pan. Bake 19 to 21 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
