Chicken Shawarma Recipe

Step 1

Wash the chicken fillet, take the chicken skin off and slice them into strips. Add them to a mixing bowl.

Step 2

Mix up the salt, turmeric, black pepper, and garlic powder. Add them along with the olive oil to the Chicken and massage the seasoning into the chicken fillets.

Step 3

Cut the onion into slices and add them to the Chicken. Mix everything together.

Step 4

Cover the Chicken with a plastic film and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour. Chilling the mixture will marinate the Chicken and infuse it with flavor.

Step 5

While the Chicken is marinating, prepare the tahini sauce. For this purpose, pour the thick yogurt with mayonnaise, tahini, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper into a suitable bowl.

Step 6

Finely grate the garlic and add it to the bowl. Then mix until the sauce is uniform. Note that the sauce should be as thick as porridge.

Step 7

Now put a suitable pan on low heat and coat it with oil. Once the oil is hot enough, add the marinated chicken fillets into the pan and sauté until the fillets change color.

Step 8

Meanwhile, you can fry the potatoes. Slice the potato lengthwise to your desired thickness.

Step 9

Put a pan on the heat and add two to three tablespoons of oil. Then fry the potatoes in oil over medium heat until they get golden.

Step 10

Wash the parsley and drain the excess water. Now transfer them to a tray and chop them finely.

Step 11

Place the pita bread on your tray. Take the tahini sauce and spread it on the center of the bread.

Step 12

Pile a layer of the chicken fillets, fried potatoes, chopped pickles, parsley, and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on the bread and roll it. You can top the ingredient with tahini sauce if you like.

Step 13

At this stage, preheat the sandwich maker, then roast the shawarmas in the machine. In the absence of a sandwich maker, place an unoiled grill pan on medium heat and put the shawarmas in the pan. Then put a heavy object on them to grill them thoroughly.

Step 14

Once the shawarmas are roasted, and the bread is crispy, cut them in half and put them in your desired dish. You do not have to eat shawarma with bread if you want to stay away from carbohydrates, and you can serve them with salad or plain. Enjoy your meal.
