Chicken Shawarma Wrap

When you were too lazy to make your lunch last week, but this week you want to do better and eat healthy, then why not make this Chicken Shawarma Wrap for your lunch meal-prep!

Lately, I have seen various “Tasty” videos where they are stacking meat on a skewer and baking it in the oven (Mexican-style pork tacos & Giant Chicken Tikka Kabob). From there I branched off and decided to go with middle eastern style flavors because I wanted to incorporate hummus.

 

Chicken Shawarma Wrap (serves 5)

Ingredients

  • 1 bamboo skewer
  • 1 onion cut in half
  • 3-4 Chicken thighs, debone

Marinade

  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 1 tbs ground corriander
  • 1/2 tbs ground cardamon
  • 1 tbs paprika
  • 1 tbs cayenne pepper (put less if you don’t like too spicy)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tbs olive oil

Wrap

  • 5 tortilla (I like the spinach flavored ones)
  • 1 carrot, julienne
  • 1 small cucumber, jullienne
  • 1 red capsicum, jullienne
  • 1 green onion stalk, jullienne
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  •  10 cherry tomatos, halved
  • bunch of lettuce
  • 5 tbs hummus

Directions:

Chicken

  1. Preheat oven 350F/180C
  2. Combine and whisk all marinade ingredients
  3. Mix marinade with chicken and let it marinate for 2-3 hours in an airtight container. (For best results marinate over night or up to 24 hours)
  4. On a foiled baking tray, placed the cut onion flat side touching the tray. Poke skewer through the center of your onion, so the skewer is sticking up in the center.
  5. Poke chicken through the skewer on top of the onion, and continue until all thigh fillets are stacked on top of each other. Top off with the remaining half onion.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30-60 minutes depending on how many chicken thigh fillets you are using. (I used 4 and it took 35 minutes to fully cook)
  7. After the chicken is cooked and cooled then slice the chicken in the pieces.

Wrap

  1. Mix all ingredients, except the hummus and set aside
  2. Spread hummus on the center of the torilla
  3. Top with salad mix
  4. Top with chicken
  5. Add sauces to your liking: sriracha, garlic aioli, mint sauce, etc
  6. Close the wrap burrito style, and toast on a sandwich press
  7. Cut in half and ENJOY!
