Simple delicious recipe for chicken shawarma that can be grilled or baked – full of Middle Eastern flavor. Serve over Israeli Salad.




  1. Place all ingredients except chicken in a bowl and mix, or pulse in a food processor to make a paste.
  2. Rub chicken on all sides with the marinade and let sit 20 minutes (or up to 24 hours refrigerated).
  3. Grill chicken on a pre-heated BBQ, on medium high heat, closing the lid to the BBQ, until all sides have nice grill marks, about 8 minutes each side. Finish chicken in a 350 F oven until cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes.  ( Alternatively you can  bake the chicken thighs in a 375 F oven for 30-40 minutes)
  4. Enjoy the chicken over Israeli salad, or with rice and veggies.
