DOTN Homemade Mediterranean Food amp Fruity Dessert

5 years ago

This was my dinner of the night AND dessert of the night yesterday! We had chicken out to be cooked and per the norm, I wasnt entirely sure what I wanted to do with it. After getting home from running a few errands, I decided I wanted to make Mediterranean (Lebanese) food! I had a package of shwarma seasoning so I used that. At a Lebanese restaurant you can get shwarma in a sandwich form OR on a plate. If on a plate, depending on where you go the hummus is either on the bottom of the plate or mixed in with the meat. Since my boyfriend isnt as big of a lover of hummus as I am, I decided to have it on the side but typically this dish would be creamier because the hummus is mixed into the mixture once cooked.

For my chicken shwarma I cut up a medium onion in long thin slices, sliced up a plum tomato added my cleaned and cubed chicken and dissolved shwarma seasoning in water and put in a teaspoon of minced garlic. I tossed it all until coated and baked in a 350F oven for 30 minutes. 20 minutes in, I flipped the chicken over to make sure evenly seasoned in the sauce.

I cooked a pan of Middle East rice pilaf on the stove simple and easy, just following the box directions, although I did only add a teaspoon of margarine instead of the oil or butter it called for. To pair off the rest of the dinner, I served mixed salad, some hummus (which I dipped my chicken in while eating) and tabouli.

For dessert later on, my boyfriend and I shared this plate of fresh pineapple, watermelon and cantaloupe. I went on a fruit craze the other day at a new market that opened up and bought everything fresh and reasonably priced. Overall, it was a great, refreshing meal!
