Chicken Sharwarma – A handful of common spices to make this incredibly aromatic chicken. 5 minutes to prepare, whether for 4 or 40 people.

  • 2lb /1 kg chicken thigh fillets , skinless and boneless (Note 3)

MARINADE

  • 1 large garlic clove , minced (or 2 small cloves)
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground cardamon
  • 1 tsp ground cayenne pepper (reduce to 1/2 tsp to make it not spicy)
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

YOGHURT SAUCE

  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt

  • Salt and pepper

TO SERVE

  • 6 flatbreads (Lebanese or pita bread orhomemade soft flatbreads)

  • Tomato slices

Instructions

  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a large ziplock bag (or bowl).
  2. Add the chicken and use your hands to make sure each piece is coated. If using a ziplock bag, I find it convenient to close the bag then massage the bag to disperse the rub all over each chicken piece.
  3. Marinate overnight or up to 24 hours.
