    Harissa is spicy condiment from Tunisia. It’s loaded with flavor, but very low in fat and calories, making it a perfect accompaniment to healthful meals.


    • 4 Oz Jar Roasted Red Peppers, Rinsed And Drained
    • 1 Tbsp. Plus 1 Tsp. Olive Oil, Divided
    • 1 Tbsp. Plus 1 Tsp. Red Wine Vinegar, Divided
    • 1 Tsp. Ground Cumin
    • 1/2 Tsp. Granulated Sugar
    • 1 1/4 Tsp. Garlic Powder
    • 1/4 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
    • 2 Tsp. Hungarian Sweet Paprika
    • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
    • 1 Medium Yellow Squash, Sliced 1/2-Inch Thick Diagonally
    • 1 Medium Zucchini, Sliced 1/2-Inch Thick Diagonally
    • 1 Lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Halves (4 Small)


    For the Red Pepper Harissa:
    Place roasted red peppers, 1 teaspoon each of the oil and vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon of the cumin, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of the garlic powder and crushed red pepper in blender or food processor; cover. Process or blend until a chunky sauce forms. (Do not puree.) Set aside.
    For Chicken:
    Mix remaining 1 tablespoon each oil and vinegar, paprika, remaining 1 teaspoon garlic powder, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cumin and salt in small bowl. Place vegetables in large bowl. Add 1/2 of the spice mixture; toss to coat well.
    Place chicken in another bowl. Add remaining spice mixture; turn to coat well.
    Grill chicken over medium heat 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Grill vegetables 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until tender-crisp.
    Serve 2 tablespoons Red Pepper Harissa with each serving of chicken and vegetables.
    Cook's Tip:
    You can roast your own sweet red bell peppers for the harissa sauce. Use one large or two small.
