Homemade Chicken Shawarma Sandwich!

4 years ago

Ah, Lebanese/Middle Eastern dishes -- some of my absolute favorite! This just happens to be one of my favorite sandwiches, outside of a kibbee sandwich. Whenever my boyfriend and I go out for dinner at a local Lebanese restaurant, I always order the Chicken Shawarma. You can make it different ways, by adjusting the spices you wish to use, but I personally buy a package of seasoning that has all the spices that go into Chicken Shawarma. It`s a lot more affordable for me that way, especially since there are some Middle Eastern spices that I would just not use on a daily basis.

I clean and cut up the chicken, rinsing it and putting it into a baking dish. I then add in some sliced white onion (I used Vidalia this time around since I had 2 big ones lying around), 3 plum tomatoes and I then add in my seasoning packet that I mixed with water. I used about 1/3 of the packet and just eyeballed some water. This time I took some hummus and mixed it into the water mixture and poured it over the chicken and veggies. I stirred it up and baked it in a 350 degree oven. Halfway thru cooking time, I stirred everything to make sure the seasoning continued to coat the chicken and baked off for 15 more minutes. The added humus thickened up the "sauce" a bit which is exactly how I like it -- reminds me of the authentic meal. I would have liked to add a lot more hummus than I did, but my boyfriend doesn`t love hummus as much as I do, so I decided a little would go a long way.

Unlike my local Lebanese restaurant, I layered the meat on some pita and added in some salad. It was quite delicious and a great meal and lunch the following day at work.
