Honey and Harissa Glazed Chicken

Honey and Harissa Glazed Chicken

We’re suckers for sweet and spicy chicken, especially when it’s quick and easy to make. This main dish is worthy of weekend dinner parties and a weeknight meal alike.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • 2 (225g) chicken thighs, bone-in skin-on
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon harissa
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  1. In the Anyday dish, coat chicken thighs with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 7-8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked most of the way through. Transfer the chicken thighs to a baking tray.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat your broiler.
  4. In the Anyday dish, add honey, harissa, apple cider vinegar, and cornstarch to the juices from the chicken and stir to combine. Cook uncovered for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Brush chicken thighs with the sauce and place a few inches under the broiler for about 1-2 minutes, or until browned. Keep an eye on it, since it will go fast!
  6. Spoon extra sauce over chicken to serve.
