Middle eastern chicken shawarma sandwich recipe /* ]]> */
Jul 202012

I love me some good Middle Eastern food. A yummy chicken shawarma is a great way to taste the spices & flavors of the Mid East! I’ve written about Middle Eastern food here and here. The way I make this dish is I make a big batch of all the components (all cut up and ready to add to the sandwich) and then store this in the fridge and leave it there for a few days until I’m ready to use it. Then when I want to make a sandwich, I simply take out my tray of fix-ins and assemble!

Middle eastern chicken shawarma sandwich recipe

  • 1 package thin-sliced chicken breast
  • shawarma spices (found in International/Ethnic aisle of many supermarkets or Middle Eastern grocery store)
  • 6 pita pockets
  • 1 English cucumber, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 cups tahini sauce (puree 1 cup tahini paste with 1 cup water)
  1. Rub the shawarma spices on the chicken breast and grill the chicken on a grill pan over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Slice the chicken after it has cooled.
  2. Assemble all the fix-ins on a large tray or platter.
  3. Heat up a pita pocket on a skillet until warm.
  4. Fill with the sliced chicken, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley and tahini sauce.
  5. Enjoy immediately!
