Shawarma-Spiced Grilled Chicken

I'm sharing a new recipe from Skinnytaste One & Done Cookbook that we recently tried and loved! If your tastebuds enjoy some spice, give this Shawarma-Spiced Grilled Chicken Thighs with Tahini recipe a try. You can serve it with some butter lettuce or even add it to a pita for a yummy lunch idea.

Skinnytaste One & Done Cookbook

I’ve got a yummy new dinner recipe to share with you from my friend Gina’s brand new cookbook, Skinnytaste One & Done (out now)!

This new book offers recipes for a variety of appliances such as your Slow Cooker, Instant Pot, Dutch Oven and more. I flipped through and quickly landed on this Shawarma-spiced grilled chicken recipe in the grill pan section. Although, we actually cooked it on the outdoor grill because it was a nice evening outside (and I also don’t own a grill pan!). I chose this recipe because I recently tried and enjoyed a Shawarma sandwich at a newer restaurant in town and was excited to make something similar at home!

The recipe was easy to make, and the flavor was really good—I’ll definitely be making it again! Next time I might even try substituting already made hummus for the tahini sauce as a time saver. It won’t be exactly the same, of course, but I think it could work. We each ate this meal in different ways… I wrapped up all the goodies inside my whole-wheat pita, one of my daughters opened up the pocket in her pita for the chicken, and my husband said the chicken was too good by itself, so he just ate everything separately. Thank you, Gina, for the Shawarma recipe and congrats on your new book!

  1. My fiance found your recipe. He printed it and handed it to me last weekend. I made it my mission to find the ingredients and make this tonight. Can I just say Wow, and Thank You!!!
    We so enjoyed this tonight. I had some breast tenderloins I added to the mix. I can’t wait to have company over and serve this!

    Thus looks a lot more different than the type i see over here. i think I would love the idea of trying this out! I’m always looking for variety in foods and this is a good inspiration.
