Easy Chicken Shawarma

Easy Chicken Shawarma

This Easy Chicken Shawarma is perfect for grilling season! The chicken is bathed in an aromatic Middle Eastern inspired marinade, then grilled/cooked to charred perfection. It’s perfect in wraps and drizzled with either a tangy yogurt or tahini sauce!If you’ve never had chicken shawarma before; let me just say, you’re in for a treat! Completely perfect if you’ve been in a dinner rut and are tired of making the same chicken dishes over and over again.

It’s a popular Middle-Eastern food, traditionally made by roasting big cones of meat on a rotating vertical spit, but you can get very close to those delicious flavors right at home, with no special equipment needed.

We love chicken shawarma because it’s so easy to make, and the flavors are just incredible. Plus, it’s really versatile!

The chicken is fabulous on it’s own, on a flatbread, in a pita, in a naan bread wrap, in a salad, and more! We like to serve it with hummus (homemade or store bought), basmati rice, naan bread (or a pita), fresh cilantro, and a fresh salad.
