Roasted Chicken Shawarma

Oh my goodness was this delicious!!  Packed with flavor – and flavors that my exotic-flavor loving family couldn’t get enough of.

Although a number of ingredients in the marinade, it comes together pretty quick.  In fact I did it around 7am before leaving for work.  I let the chicken sit in the marinade all day – then made the tabbouleh salad when I got home.  My organic chicken breasts weren’t that big – so I definitely cooked the chicken less than 45 minutes.  Use your best judgement and cook appropriately.  The garlic sauce (although got rave reviews on the website) didn’t sound all that great to me and didn’t sound all that healthy.  Instead, I mixed some greek yogurt with some lemon juice and garlic.  Even healthier would be to serve this over a bed of greens – but I managed to find some fluffy pita bread at the grocery store, so splurged on some carbs.
