1 tsp (5 mL) ground cumin

1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground coriander

1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp (1 mL) smoked paprika

1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon

Pinch ground allspice

1/4 cup (60 mL) coarsely chopped fresh cilantro


Garlic Yogurt Sauce:

3/4 cup (175 mL) 2% plain yogurt

1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh mint

1 tsp (5 mL) finely grated lemon zest

1 small clove garlic, minced

Pinch each salt and freshly ground pepper


Middle Eastern Salad:

1/2 English cucumber, seeded and diced

2 tomatoes, seeded and diced

1/2 small sweet onion, diced

1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped fresh parsley

2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice

1 tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt


Harissa Chicken Thighs:

4 chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 lb/750 g)

1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup (60 mL) harissa sauce

1 cup (250 mL) tomato sauce

1/2 cup (125 mL) chick peas

1/4 cup (60 mL) sliced black olives

1/4 cup (60 mL) chopped fresh parsley


  1. Garlic Yogurt Sauce: Stir together yogurt, mint, lemon zest, garlic, salt and pepper until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use or for up to 1 day.
  2. Middle Eastern Salad: Toss together cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley, lemon juice, oil and salt. Set aside.
  3. Harissa Chicken Thighs: Season chicken with salt and pepper. In ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, skin side down, for five minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Turn thighs over and drain fat from skillet. Add onion, garlic and harissa to skillet; sauté for 3 minutes or until onion is softened. Add tomato sauce, chick peas and olives; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Sprinkle with parsley.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare Superfries according to package directions. Before the last 5 minutes of cooking, remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, paprika, cinnamon and allspice; toss until well coated. Return Superfries to the oven for the remaining 5 minutes or until crisp and fully cooked.
  5. Transfer Superfries to serving platter; top with Garlic Yogurt sauce and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with Harissa Chicken Thighs and Middle Eastern Salad.

Tip: Harissa can be found in the international section of most well-stocked grocery stores, boutique kitchen shops or Middle Eastern grocers.
