GD that's a tasty Shawarma!

REALLY GOOD!

Reccomendations:
Slice the chicken pretty thin, and marinade w/ the recipe in a ziplock bag for a few hours. I added some tony chachere creole seasoning.

I added Garlic and a little garlic salt to the topping.

Some of the best chicken i've ever eaten!

Great Chicken, Sauce needed some work

These were really good. The seasoning on the chicken was fantastic. I really did not enjoy the sauce as it is written in the recipe, but I was able to salvage it by adding 3 cloves of garlic and more of the plain yogurt. I also added a bit of fresh dill--it made the sauce a lot more like a true garlicy tzatziki. We also added other ingredients in the pita, like onions, green onion, tomatoes, lettuce, mushrooms, green pepper, feta cheese, cheddar cheese, etc.

Easy, Yummy

Great Flavor and Easy to Prepare

These were so easy to prepare! I made the cucumber-yogurt sauce ahead using non-fat greek yogurt. I also tried to duplicate the chicken shawarma at Pita Jungle by adding a bit of plain hummus and including chopped onion, chopped cucumber, and diced pickle. Wonderful! Thanks for the recipe!

Do Ahead Steps, Flavor, Easy

I love Shawarmas!

What sort of super griller are you using to grill only 2 min per side? Honestly!! But it was really good, not dried out after we cooked our breast for about 5-7 min each side

Spicy and Cool - the Perfect Sandwich Blend

The chicken has a little bit of a kick from the curry but the cucumber-yogurt sauce (like tzatziki sauce) cools it off nicely. I grilled the chicken indoors on my cast-iron grill pan. The chicken only took about 7 minutes to cook. I served the chicken in pitas with the sauce, spinach, and chopped tomatoes.

quick, tasty
