    It's not my recipe but my friend did a harissa chicken traybake from the BBC website a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Meat, vegetables and potatoes all cook in one dish as well so saves on washing up.

    4 chicken legs
    4 tbsp harissa paste (rose harissa is nice)
    1 garlic bulb, broken into cloves
    1 lemon, cut into wedges
    400g cherry tomatoes on the vine
    350g new potatoes, halved if large
    50g Kalamata olives, chopped
    2 tbsp olive oil

    green salad, to serve (optional)

    Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Score deep lines all over the chicken legs, then rub in the harissa. Season well and place in a roasting tin. Scatter the garlic over and around the chicken. Squeeze the lemon wedges over, then place them in the tin with the cherry tomatoes, potatoes and olives. Season, drizzle over the oil and toss briefly to mix everything together.

    Cook in the oven for 45 mins-1 hr until the chicken is cooked through and golden. Serve with salad, if you like.
