For the "Foods You Love" throwdown -

Chicken Shawarma and Naan Bread

Yes, I've previously posted Chicken Shawarma and Naan Bread cooks, but since there's a "Foods You Love" throwdown it was on the menu for tonite's dinner. This is one of those dishes that I love making. It's fun to prepare, easy to grill and as always, is outstanding.

This morning I removed the bones from eight chicken thighs. The recipe calls for skinless, boneless thighs but I left the skin on for this cook. I prepared the marinade and brushed it on the chicken pieces -

Then into the fridge for the day. In the meantime I prepared the dough for the Naan bread, this time making two batches -

You can never have too much Naan bread. They rose quite nicely through the day. Rather than trying to manage two grills like I usually do, Mrs lunchman was in charge of grilling the Naan in two cast iron skillets on the stove.

The chicken thighs placed on the Goldens' -

And after about 30-40 minutes, they're ready to come off -

Some are cut into thin strips -

All the fixin's -

(Shredded lettuce, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, guac and the sour cream/cumin/lemon juice mix (usually made with yogurt, but we like sour cream)
