Shawarma is a fast-food staple across the Middle East, Europe and in some parts of Canada. I like to think of Shawarmas as the Arabian taco because of their ubiquitous and inexpensive nature. Chicken Shawarma sandwiches are thinly cut meat stuffed inside pita breads that are sliced open and served with tomatoes, cucumbers, hummus, tahini or garlic sauce.
Combine all the Chicken Shawarma ingredients (except the oil) in a large bowl to marinate chicken. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Place marinated chicken strips into the skillet and cook over medium high heat. Cook a few at a time and do not overcrowd the pan. Cook till the chicken is done and starts to turn brown on all sides and releases its oil. When done, remove chicken from the skillet and repeat with remaining chicken if you are cooking it in batches.
Lay out your pita breads flat on a plate. Place enough chicken on top of the pita to cover 1/4 of it. Add veggies and pour in some of the pan sauce. Roll it like a soft taco or burrito and you have shawarma! You can also stuff the pocket of the pita if you like.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
