Chicken shawarma Salad
I know i said i would have this chicken shawarma salad recipe up over the weekend, so i apologise that it is a little late. I promise that it is worth the wait. It is absolutely delicious. This may not be the most authentic shawarma recipe because it isn’t cooked on a rotisserie but i think it works well as a salad. The rotisserie method isn’t alway accessible. I have used all the flavours of a shawarma and baked it in the oven followed by a short blast under the grill. This recipe is for a salad, although of course you could eat it as a sandwich or naanwich ;). If i was making a lamb version, i would use a griddle instead. I have made this with both chicken breast and thighs and would recommend you use thighs but if you are watching what you eat, then breast would be better and it also cooks quicker (Halve the time and keep an eye on it as it can dry out).
My little sis is really into Japanese food. She mentioned a few dishes that she really loves to eat, so i began to do some research. As i was reading, i kept seeing something called ‘Nasu Dengaku’ or Miso Aubergine and i had to try it because I just love me some aubergines. I made it a few different ways and then came up with this method. I can just taste it now. Luckily i have some aubergines in the fridge yo. So i’m going to consider making this later on..
