Chicken Shawarma Sandwiches - The marinated chicken in this recipe is typically made into shawarma sandwiches. It’s wrapped in Arabic bread with pickles and mayo. However, this chicken is also great on top of a bed of salad greens, pasta, or rice…or it can be mixed with sautéed or steamed veggies (such as bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, broccoli, etc.) and eaten stir-fry style.

Cooking Directions

  1. Mix together all of the marinade ingredients.

  2. Pound out the chicken breasts so that they’re equal thickness throughout.

  3. Cut each chicken breast in half.

  4. Cover the chicken with the marinade and refrigerate for 1-2 days.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  6. Remove the chicken from the marinade (making sure to scrape off the excess marinade).

  7. Layer it in an 8X8” baking dish, just in the center of the dish; don’t let the chicken go to the edge of the pan.

  8. Around the perimeter of the chicken, wrap two pieces of aluminum foil, so that the chicken holds together in a square; don’t cover the top of the chicken with foil.

  9. Bake the chicken for 1 hour, or until the internal temperature is 165F (if you don’t have a thermometer, you can cut the chicken and make sure there’s no pink inside).
