CHICKEN SHAWARMA



Chicken shawarma image

Add oomph to chicken kebabs with yogurt, Indian spices and chillies. This smoky, flavour-packed tandoori shawarma can be cooked on the barbecue or in the oven

Provided by Barney Desmazery

Categories     Dinner

Time 1h5m

Number Of Ingredients 12

2 lemons , 1 juiced, 1 cut into wedges to serve
150g pot natural yogurt
4 garlic cloves
thumb-sized piece ginger , roughly chopped
1-2 green chillies (depending on how hot you like it)
small pack of fresh coriander
½ tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garam masala
16 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
1 large baking potato , cut in half lengthways
6 shop-bought naan bread

Steps:

  • Tip all the ingredients, except the chicken and lemon wedges, into a blender or a smoothie bullet with 1 tsp sea salt and whizz to a smooth paste. Pile the chicken into a bowl or large plastic container, pour over the paste and mix through so the chicken is completely coated. Cover and marinate for at least 4 hrs or up to 48 hrs - the longer, the better.
  • Cooking on the barbecue: Light a lidded barbecue, and let the flames die down. Once the coals have turned ashen, pile them up on one side with a few coals scattered around the other. Starting and ending with half a baking potato, thread all the chicken onto two long metal skewers - so that both skewers go through each piece of meat - packing the thighs down between the potato halves so that they are really compact. Place the large chicken kebab to the side of the barbecue with only a few coals underneath. Pop the lid down and cook for 45-50 mins, turning every 15 mins, or until cooked through - prise the chicken pieces apart in the centre to check, or use a digital cooking thermometer; it should read 70C or more. Leave to rest for 5 mins.
  • Cooking in the oven: Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 8. Sit the kebab across a roasting tin so it is suspended, or rest a wire rack over a roasting tin and place the chicken on top. Cook for 45-55 mins or until cooked through.
  • Warm the naan on the barbecue or in the oven. Bring the kebab to the table to carve, wrap with warm naans, and serve with the other salads and lemon wedges for squeezing over.

OVEN-ROASTED CHICKEN SHAWARMA



Oven-Roasted Chicken Shawarma image

Here is a recipe for an oven-roasted version of the classic street-side flavor bomb usually cooked on a rotisserie. It is perfect for an evening with family and friends. Serve with pita and tahini, chopped cucumbers and tomatoes, some olives, chopped parsley, some feta, fried eggplant, hummus swirled with harissa, rice or rice pilaf. You can make the white sauce that traditionally accompanies it by cutting plain yogurt with mayonnaise and lemon juice, and flecking it with garlic. For a red to offset it, simmer ketchup with red pepper flakes and a hit of red-wine vinegar until it goes syrupy and thick, or just use your favorite hot sauce instead.

Categories     dinner, lunch, main course

Time 45m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 13

2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
6 cloves garlic, peeled, smashed and minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
A pinch ground cinnamon
Red pepper flakes, to taste
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 large red onion, peeled and quartered
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Steps:

  • Prepare a marinade for the chicken. Combine the lemon juice, 1/2 cup olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, turmeric, cinnamon and red pepper flakes in a large bowl, then whisk to combine. Add the chicken and toss well to coat. Cover and store in refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
  • When ready to cook, heat oven to 425 degrees. Use the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to grease a rimmed sheet pan. Add the quartered onion to the chicken and marinade, and toss once to combine. Remove the chicken and onion from the marinade, and place on the pan, spreading everything evenly across it.
  • Put the chicken in the oven and roast until it is browned, crisp at the edges and cooked through, about 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to rest 2 minutes, then slice into bits. (To make the chicken even more crisp, set a large pan over high heat, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, then the sliced chicken, and sauté until everything curls tight in the heat.) Scatter the parsley over the top and serve with tomatoes, cucumbers, pita, white sauce, hot sauce, olives, fried eggplant, feta, rice - really anything you desire.

Provided by Rebekah Rose Hills

Time 4h25m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 20

½ cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon bottled minced garlic
¼ teaspoon dried dill weed
⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
⅛ teaspoon salt
½ head romaine lettuce, shredded
1 cucumber, diced
2 medium Roma tomatoes, diced
4 (6 inch) pita bread rounds

Steps:

  • Combine Greek yogurt, garlic, lemon juice, cinnamon, oregano, salt, nutmeg, and cloves in a plastic container or resealable bag. Add chicken strips and shake until ingredients are evenly combined and chicken is well coated. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, up to overnight.
  • When you are ready to make the sandwiches, heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add marinated chicken, and sear until golden brown on both sides and no longer pink in the centers, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness of the chicken pieces.
  • While the chicken is cooking, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, dill, garlic powder, and salt in a bowl or small resealable container, stir well to blend. Taste and adjust seasonings if desired.
  • Once chicken is cooked and sauce is prepared, assemble sandwiches by dividing meat, lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes between your pita. Add a generous smear of the yogurt sauce (to your taste preference).
