Chicken Schwarma

June 20, 2013

This is probably one of my top five favorite dinners ever!!! I love the spice combo on the chicken paired with the tangy garlic sauce and soft whole wheat pita! YUM!

Jason actually stumbled across this recipe in Men’s Health and suggested we try it. We were so happy with the results it has become a staple for us, especially in the summer when we can get more of the ingredients fresh from our garden!

It’s pretty simple and quick, so it’s great for a week night meal, throw some veggies on the grill with the chicken and you’re set!

Here’s what you need:
For the chicken:
1lb chicken (I used tenderloins)
Lemon juice
Coriander
All spice
Salt
Olive oil

Garlic sauce:
Garlic
Lemon juice
Salt
Olive oil
Yogurt

Tomato salad:
1 tomato
1/2 onion
Handful of fresh parsley

To prepare the chicken combine lemon juice, olive oil and all the spices in a ziplock bag or bowl and mix.
