Shawarma is a Middle Eastern dish that’s become a popular street food around the world, but it’s easy enough to make in your own kitchen. This recipe calls for boneless skinless chicken thighs that are marinated in a fragrant mixture of spices. Bake the chicken in the oven, then toss it into pita bread with cucumber, tomatoes, pickles, and a homemade white sauce made with Greek yogurt and lemon juice.
