APril recipe: chicken shawarma salad

This Chicken Shawarma Salad is made with an authentic Lebanese style marinade that’s easy to make with simple spices and comes out so moist and juicy. I serve the chicken shawarma with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, sliced banana peppers and drizzle with my easy tahini sauce. It’s a flavor packed Middle Eastern salad recipe that you’ll want to have on repeat!

What is the Feel Good Foodie Cooking Challenge?

This Cooking Challenge is a fun way for us to join together and cook or bake the recipe of the month! It also allows us to collect feedback from all of you on your experience with the recipe, changes you’d make, ingredients you’d add, and more. It helps you get in the kitchen and try something new!

You will have until the last few days of the month to make the recipe and leave a rating and a comment on feelgoodfoodie.net. At the end of the month, we’ll share photos of some of your creations and announce a winner of a grand prize gift of a $100 gift card to Amazon.

  1. Made this in Ramadan; it was the best. I let it marinate overnight; you tasted the spices in the chicken; most important, it was a complete meal. After consuming a small bowl of chicken shawarma, we did not require more food. Love it and will make it again.

        1. Aww, thank you so much! You can check out my Instagram page (@feelgoodfoodie) or Facebook page (Feelgoodfoodie).

  2. By cardamom, do you mean cardamom powder or green cardamom pods and the inside? Sorry I’m new to cooking 🙄

      1. This was SO GOOD!! Better than the shawarma places 😍😍😍 can’t wait to make the shish tawook next. You’re amazing!!

  3. Chicken Shawarma anything is my favorite. I make it often and I always look forward to it. Since no one I know doesn’t know about Shawarma, I get the pleasure to introduce them to it and they love it. I made 3 times this week for different guests and I have an event next month I will be making it for 45 guests which I’ll making it. Every time I serve it, they tell me they never tasted anything so good. LOL

  4. This was delicious! I used sesame oil instead of olive oil and spinach instead of romaine lettuce and I added avocado. I also used chicken breast instead of thigh. I didn’t add banana pepper because I don’t like them. The salad was good with these substitutions and changes.
