Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 pita breads
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/2 cup tzatziki sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, turmeric, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  • Add the chicken thighs to the bowl and toss to coat in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.
  • Grill the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  • To assemble the shawarmas, warm the pita breads in the microwave or on the grill for a few seconds. Spread a spoonful of hummus and tzatziki sauce on each pita.
  • Top with the sliced chicken, chopped tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and parsley. Drizzle with additional tzatziki sauce, if desired.
  • Fold the pita in half and serve immediately.
