Roasted Harissa Chicken with Potatoes and Artichokes

Roasted Harissa Chicken with Potatoes and Artichokes

This North African roasted chicken recipe has all the right flavors for a hearty, comfort filled dinner.  The Harissa add just the right amount of heat, but not heat for heat's sake.  The bold flavors of the chiles come through and act as the medium for merging the potatoes and artichokes into an amazing one-pan meal.  Don't skip the preserved lemons...they make a huge difference.
