Shawarma-Spice Chicken

Recommended Posts

A new to me recipe but it sounded good so here it is- but

before I start here is the first ripe Tiny Tim tomato from my plant. You can see the thick juice holding the 2 halves together at the bottom.

Marinated the boneless skinless chicken thighs in the sauce and vacuumed sealed for a few hours before putting them on the grill.

On the grill-

Cooked at 300-325F until the internal temp said they were done.

Earlier in the day I made up the yogurt-tahini sauce, and the salad.

For the last 5 mins. of the cook I had the homemade pita wrapped in foil and on the grill.

Slice the chicken.

Plated and I rolled it up and ate it that way messy as it was.:)

I used this recipe with some modifications, just used the ingredients I had. Mostly changed the veggies for the salad and I also didn't have any mint.

Tomato looks awesome. I had my first off my plants tonight with my dinner salad. OK, a bit watery, but lots of others in various stages on the plants to look forward to! 

You put that broccolini in there just to mess with me, didn't you, MacKenzie! :smt018

Has anyone done a true shawarma on their KK - stacked the chicken pieces onto a vertical rod??

Thanks, Shuley. By mistake I added double the amount of cayenne pepper that the recipe called for but it turned to be just the right amount for my tastes.:)


I'm also a fan of cayenne heat. Unfourtunately, I have to scale it back a bit for my kiddos but I bet once they are older they will like heat more.

Mtroo, thank you very much. :) The chicken thighs are in the top half of a broiler pan that came with the toaster oven. I didn't want a solid pan so used only the part with the slits in the bottom. 

Ahhh...   Thanks.
