Description

Imagine the same bold flavors you'd get with classic shawarma, but instead of grilling the meat on a spit, you take the easy route and roast and caramelize the meat in the oven. For maximum flavor, you can marinate the meat overnight, but the dish is still plenty tasty marinated an hour before baking. Serve the chicken and generous juices with rice or pita, your favorite hot sauce, and a drizzle of yogurt mixed with salt and grated garlic. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Jennifer Clair.

    Great! Didn’t add olives and would use more tomatoes and onion next time. But the spice blend was well balanced and flavorful without being overwhelming
