Chicken Shawarma

Chicken Shawarma is a Middle Eastern chicken dish that is bursting with flavor and will have you drooling. It is usually cooked on a rotating spit but I achieved the irresistible charred effect by grilling the chicken instead. It is so easy to make and offers a healthy and satisfying meal. This chicken is marinated in several spices which gives it a exotic flavor. Wrap it in a delicious naan or place it on a salad, either way you won't be disappointed.

Chicken Shawarma


2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs


2 tbsp olive oil juice from

1 lemon

3 garlic cloves minced

1 tsp gram masala

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp tumeric

1 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp salt

Dill Sauce

2 tbsp sour cream

2 tbsp mayonnaise

1 garlic clove minced juice from half of lemon

1 tbsp dried dill pinch of salt and pepper


Slice chicken as thin as you can. In a large bowl mix together all the marinade ingredients. Pour over chicken. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cook chicken on an indoor or outdoor grill. To make dill sauce, simply stir all the ingredients together. To make a wrap use some warm naan bread and place chicken inside along with sliced cucumber and tomato. Top with some mixed greens or lettuce and then drizzle with some dill sauce.
