Chicken Shawarma

Posted by ila nguyen on

Shawarma is traditionally cooked in a rotisserie oven or on a spit, but this home version is much more manageable to do. Serve with feta cheese, pickled red onions, tomato slices, tahini (or hummus), and shredded lettuce for a balanced meal.



  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled, smashed and minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 compact Organic Shawarma Seasoning
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and quartered

  1. Prepare the marinade - blitz lemon juice, oil, garlic cloves, salt, and Shawarma seasoning in a blender until creamy. Add to chicken and toss well to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 12.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line chicken and onion quarters on an foiled and oiled baking sheet.
  3. Roast until brown, about 30~40 minutes. Remove from oven and rest for at least 5 minutes. Slice and serve with shawarma fixings.
