Chicken Shawarma

Chicken Shawarma

This chicken is marinated in spices and grilled then served on soft pita bread with a yogurt sauce. It's so good. FYI you need to marinate overnight.
Servings 4-6


  1. Combine 1/2 the garlic, the coriander, 1 Tbsp. cumin, cardamom, cayenne, paprika, salt, 2 Tbsp. lemon juice, olive oil, and pepper to taste to a large zip lock bag. Add the chicken and use your hands to make sure each piece is coated. Marinate overnight or up to 24 hours.
  2. Combine yogurt, remaining garlic, cumin, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Cover and put in fridge (it will last in fridge for 3 days).
  3. Heat grill to medium high. Place chicken on the grill and cook fro 4-5 minutes until nicely charred, then turn and cook 3-4 minutes more. Remove chicken from grill and cover loosely with foil. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. To serve slice chicken and place evenly on pitas, top with yogurt sauce, romaine, tomato, and cucumber. Roll up and enjoy!
