How To Make Homemade Chicken Shawarma
Tangy bites of juicy chicken, topped with a creamy yogurt sauce, and wrapped in soft pita bread, makes up this delectable chicken shawarma!
Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together. Add the chicken thighs and coat evenly.
Cover and chill for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
Add all the sauce ingredients to a small bowl. Mix together and chill until ready to serve.
Adjust the oven rack about 6 inches from the top heat source in the oven, then preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and a wire rack.
Place chicken in single layer on prepared wire rack, with the smooth sides down. Broil for about 16 to 20 minutes, until chicken is well browned and registers at least 165 degrees F.
Remove and rest the chicken for 5 minutes before handling, and turn off the oven.
While chicken rests, warm the pitas in the still-warm oven for a few minutes.
Slice the chicken into thin strips and transfer to platter.
Serve with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, pickles, prepared yogurt sauce, and warm pita, then enjoy!
