Best Chicken Shawarma Salad Recipe

IngredientsChicken Shawarma

  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 1/2 c. avocado oil
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1.5-2 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

Salad

  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 head butter lettuce
  • 1/2 c. fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/2 c. fresh mint chopped
  • 2 c. cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 english cucumber seeded and sliced
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced

Lemon Tahini Dressing

  • ½ c. tahini
  • ¼ – ½ c. water
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • sea salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl add the lemon juice avocado oil salt pepper and spices and whisk. Place the raw chicken thighs into a gallon-sized zipper bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. Rub the marinade into the chicken with your (clean) hands then press the air out of the bag seal and place in the fridge. Marinate at least a few hours and up to overnight. I prepare the marinade first thing in the morning for an evening meal.
  2. When you re ready to cook preheat the oven to 425.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it onto a rimmed baking sheet. Pour any excess marinade over the chicken. Roast for 30 minutes until the chicken is cooked throughout. Set aside to cool slightly then slice into 1/2 strips.
  4. While the chicken is roasting prep the salad. Chop the lettuce and herbs then toss to combine. Chop the tomatoes and cucumber and slice the red onion.
  5. Place the tahini olive oil lemon juice salt and pepper into a blender along with 1/4 cup of water to start. (I love using my Ninja blender to make dressings. The individual cups are the perfect size for small batch items like salad dressing!). Blend until emulsified. Add additional water to reach desired consistency. For salad dressing vs. a dipping sauce I use closer to half a cup sometimes a bit more.
  6. Layer the tomatoes cucumbers and red onions over the herb salad base. Top with the chicken and then dress with tahini to taste. Serve immediately.
