Chicken Shawarma - traditionally slowly roasted in a vertical rotisserie - is one of those quintessentials dishes that pack in an explosion of flavors that you'll be reminiscing about for days. This is a simple & healthy way to make at home that's remarkable versatile - you can serve as an entree with rice and a traditional Middle Eastern Chickpea Salad, or pack it in a Whole Wheat Pita topped with a quick homemade Tzatziki Sauce for a more casual meal. Either way, this is AMAZING and will become a go to recipe for you, just as it has for us - this is the perfect solution for wanting to get a homemade, healthy and flavorful dinner on the table when you've had a busy day, as you can prep ahead and quickly cook in the oven! Chicken Thighs will do best, but we make it with Chicken Breasts more often than not to make it a bit healthier.
Inportant to note - I cut the chicken in small strips so that there is more surface area to pick up the marinade flavor (and I don’t mind it being served in chunks), but if you’d prefer, keep the chicken thighs or breasts whole, especially if you’re serving friends and as an entree.
Time: 2 hours to an Overnight Marinade, 1 Hour Prep/Cook time total.
As they say in my country, Bueno Provecho!
