Reviewed Chicken Shawarma with Tomato Cucumber Relish and Tahini Sauce

Jan 5, 2014 on

Absolutely loved this recipe! I made everything as written except I made my own homemade gluten free pita pockets and didn't skewer the chicken, just threw it in the pan and seared. I even made the tahini sauce which tasted good but was very thin and watery almost. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be this way or not because I've never had shawarma...

Absolutely divine!! Gourmet all the way. I actually use this goat cheese compound as listed in the recipe to make an upscale panini at home. Delicious! "

This recipe was AWESOME!! It reminded me of enchiladas and also spanish rice all in one. I generally follow the recipe but I normally halve it (6 servings instead of 12) as there are only 2 of us.

I have to admit that I didn't use the pepitas or horseradish cream sauce..sorry! I love root vegetables and LOVED these.

Tip: After all the vegetables are eaten used the roasted garlic to make risotto, garlic herb and oil dip or just eat them plain. Delicious"

I absolutely loved this recipe, however I felt it did take longer to cook than mentioned about (about an hour). For me it was about 1-1/2 hours. Don't skip making the pan sauce. I discarded the lemons and some of the burnt herb stems but cranked up the heat on the skillet and added the wine and let it reduce for about 8 minutes. SO good!! :p"

This recipe was easy and very good. Mine wasn't dry or grainy. I am gluten-free so it was easy to just substitute some rice flour instead of wheat flour in seeing as though it only called for 3 Tablespoons. Mine turned out VERY oily/buttery but I just got rid of some of the liquid after they cooked by slightly (and carefully) tilting the ramekins...
