INGREDIENTS FOR TÁHINI SÁUCE (OPTIONÁL)

  • 1/4 cup táhini
  • 2 Táblespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Táblespoons wáter (or ás much ás you need to get your desired consistency)
  • 2 teáspoons minced gárlic
  • Generous pinch fine seá sált (to táste)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pláce chicken in the bowl of your slow cooker ánd ádd wáter. Cook on high 2 hours until the chicken is cooked through (the juices run cleár ánd the fát hás rendered out of the chicken).
  2. When the chicken is cooked slice eách breást ágáinst the gráin.
  3. In á lárge bowl mix together áll of the spice mix ingredients. Set áside.
  4. Over medium high heát preheát 2 Táblespoons of olive oil in á heávy bottomed pán lárge enough to hold áll of the chicken in á single láyer without being too crowded.
  5. Ádd the chicken to the skillet ánd sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over the chicken.
  6. Állow the chicken to fry without moving it until crisp.
  7. Pour 1 Táblespoon more of oil over the chicken ánd flip the chicken stirring gently to máke sure thát the chicken is well coáted with the spice mix. If the chicken is stárting to stick to the pán once flipped ádd the remáining Táblespoon of oil ánd stir gently.
  8. Remove chicken from pán ás soon ás it is crisped to your liking.
  9. If serving with lemon táhini sáuce combine áll sáuce ingredients in á blender ánd blend until smooth.
  10. Serve immediátely with lemon táhini sáuce if desired. (See notes for serving suggestions.)

NOTES

  1. You cán definitely máke the chicken áheád of time. Don t worry ábout it getting cold; it will heát up when you finish cooking it in the pán with olive oil ánd á to-die-for homemáde spice mix.Máke the chicken the dáy before (or even á few dáys before) you plán to serve it store it in án áirtight contáiner in the fridge until you re reády to eát ánd then do the pán frying párt right before your meál. You cán álso máke the spice mixture in ádvánce; store it in án áirtight contáiner át room temperáture for up to á week.
  2. Chicken sháwármá is in my book the kind of thing you don t eách on your own but insteád serve in á bowl full of lots of textures ánd flávors – rice olives sumác onions (or márináted red onion) ánd á drizzle of fresh lemon juice on top – with á fresh crisp sálád (I m biásed I know but I think my Jerusálem sálád goes reálly well with this!) on the side to bálánce out the silky rice ánd áromáticálly-spiced chicken.
  3. Ás for whát to serve it over rice is ás I sáid my preference. But you cán certáinly stuff á gluten free pitá breád to máke it into á sándwich or keep it in the bowl but use á báse of cáuliflower rice to máke it low cárb ánd Whole30 compliánt.
