Chicken Shawarma

Updated: May 7, 2021

Shwarma is a great dish that can be eaten in a simple sandwich or made in to a full blown meal.

It can also be made nice and mild or hot 'n' spicy!

A favourite Egyptian dish that can be found in every restaurant, but this dish is so easy that any one can make it from the comfort of your own kitchen

2 tsp x salt

1 tsp x onion powder

1 tsp x garlic powder

1 tsp x cumin

1 tsp x coriander

1 tsp x mixed spice

1 tsp x red pepper

1/2 tsp x chilli powder

Taste the powder and you can adjust the taste as needed 😘


Step 1

Prepare your meat at least 5hrs before cooking to ensure a good flavour

Start by cutting your meat in to equal strips if your meat is a little wet pat dry with a paper towel.

Step 2
