Home-made Chicken Shawarma

Cooking with Aunty D.

An absolutely mouth-watering Arabian delight. Shawarma is an authentic meat preparation where shavings of meat grilled for as long as a day sometimes are wrapped in Pita bread along with vegetables and dressing.

This recipe is more of a quick go-to one, with roasted or fried chicken. It’s easy to make in the morning if you’re struggling with what to make for your kids to take to school to have during their interval. It’s an easy dinner recipe as well, one that takes very less time, but tastes as good.
