Chicken Shawarma for Two
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Shawarma is a Middle Eastern sandwich made with sliced seasoned meat. This recipe for two features chicken, along with a cucumber-yogurt sauce, fresh tomato and crunchy romaine lettuce.”
½ cup shredded unpeeled English cucumber or peeled regular cucumber
2Stir cucumber, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice and ⅛ teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
3Combine garlic powder, curry powder, pepper and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt in another medium bowl. Slice chicken breast crosswise into ¼-inch strips; toss with the spice mixture to coat. Add oil and toss to combine.
4Grill the chicken, turning once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
5To serve, spread half the cucumber-yogurt sauce on each pita (or lavash) and top with half the chicken, tomato and lettuce. Fold like a taco (or roll closed, if using lavash).
