Smile Chicken Sharwarma Feast!

Chicken is my wife’s flavor and I like to mix it up so for a Poultry Throwdown I went with a Shawarma feast. Started out with some chicken thighs that were on sale.

Shinned and deboned and cut them in half.

Bones were saved for making stock at a later time.

Next I made up a yogurt based shawarma marinade. Here are the ingredients:
1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
5 cloves of garlic
¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. of olive oil
2 tbsp. of ketchup
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon caraway (ground fennel)
½ teaspoon cardamon
½ teaspoon of oregano or thyme
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn
¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon ground ginger





Everybody in the pool

and then thoroughly mixed.

The thighs now went into pool for a nice long rest.

Next I made up some Tzatziki. Here are the ingredients: (From Chef John on FoodWishes.com)
2 cups Greek yogurt
1 large cucumber, peeled, grated, tossed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
juice of half a lemon or vinegar to taste
3 tbsp. chopped fresh dill and/or mint
salt, pepper, to taste







Next up was the Hummus ingredients.
One 15-ounce can (425 grams) chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
1/4 cup (59 ml) tahini (we used Krinos)
Half of a large garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt, depending on taste
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 to 3 tablespoons water
Dash of ground paprika for serving



Then some Persian Rice (From Bosco)
2 cups of basmati rice
3 ½ cups of chicken stock/broth
2 tbsp of butter
½ tsp turmeric
¼ tsp cumin
Kosher salt and pepper

And finally a Mediterranean Tomato Salad.



Now I can cook the Shawarma. Broke out my good skewers. (Closest I can come to a Shawarma rotisserie) I used two so I could better control them on the grill.

Now I tightened up the stops to help keep in the marinade and juices

and placed them on the grill.

Flipped them after 5 to 6 minutes.

Here is everything plated up family style with some cucumber slices, baby pickles, pita bread and a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA.

So Good! My wife loved everything and said it was the better that anything she’s ever ordered at a restaurant.

Thanks for looking.

You were probably just trying to get a rise out of us... but I'd be proud to "yeast" on some of that!

Looks fantastic.

Thank you SD. I thought I fixed that but I guess I didn't. You're welcome to yeast with me anytime!

That's next level right there. Is prepping everything time consuming?
