One of the food options at the team event yesterday was Shawarma (see We Ate All We Can Eat). Between us, I had my heart set on Shawarma. So tonight I made my own Chicken Shawarma to eat in le jardin. Here is the recipe for all to try.
First slice chicken pieces into very thin slices (1/8 inch thickness, ideally).
Marinate the chicken for a minimum of an hour in a paste made of:
- crushed garlic
- dried oregano
- olive oil
- a bit of mustard
- a bit of ketchup
- a bit of mayonnaise
Don't over do it with the condiments; just a bit to bring out the flavours and create a creamy texture for the marinade.
Now grill the chicken on a hot griddle until cooked. Make it into your own sandwich with tahini sauce, humus, pickles, or whatever you ask your favourite Chicken Shawarma stand to put in your sandwich.
