Chicken Shawarma Wraps Recipe

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Shawarma is eaten in Arab countries, Pakistan, South Africa and the United Kingdom, and the meats, toppings and sauce vary depending on the country. Traditionally, Shawarma is made with chicken, lamb, beef, or goat that has been marinated, and is wrapped and cooked on a vertical rotisserie (similar to Greek gyro meat). When an order is placed, meat is shaved off and served as a wrapped sandwich (using pita bread) with fresh pickles and sauce.

This Chicken Shawarma Wraps recipe is bursting with middle eastern flavors. Simple to make. Think of your favorite gyro place where they are slicing meats from a spit, and placing it inside of warm pita or flat-bread, along with sauces and vegetables. That’s shawarma, and this is my take on it. Did I mention my entire family was totally in love with this??

It is really difficult to recreate the taste of shawarma at home, but this recipe I think, does it justice. The key is to leave the chicken marinading overnight for maximum flavour, and to have the grill smoking hot when cooking. And I made the Shawarma Pickles two days before and made a batch of sour cream as well as hummus sauce.

Important Tips:

  1. Try not to pile the pitas on top of each other until after they have cooled. This keeps them nice and plump for filling.
  2. To store pita breads, you can wrap them in cling film and freeze for up to 3 weeks.
  3. For the filling you can use any mixture of your choice with salad, just slit the pitas and stuff them with your favorite ingredients.
  4. You can also make pita breads on a frying pan or hot griddle or even it a bread-maker.
