Shawarma is a Middle-Eastern dish where thin meat strips are slow-cooked on a vertical skewer or rotisserie. The traditional Shawarma involves cooking mutton strips. However, we can make grilled Shawarma at home with chicken, even if you do not have a vertical rotisserie. If you are missing gorging some juicy Shawarma from your favourite stall on the street, then our Chicken Shawarma recipe is for you. The result is flavourful, crispy and tender chicken bites.
