Grilled Chicken Shawarma With Tzatziki Sauce

    Grilled Chicken Shawarma With Tzatziki Sauce
    Marinade
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  1. In a small bowl, combine marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a plastic bag and pour marinade over the top. Shake to coat and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to 2 hours.
  2. Grill chicken on a pre-heated BBQ, on medium high heat, closing the lid to the BBQ, until all sides have nice grill marks, about 8 minutes each side.

Tzatziki
  • 1 cucumber (to make about ½ - ¾ cup grated cucumber after squeezing out juice)
  • 1¼ cups plain  yogurt
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or more if you want richer)
  • ½ garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp dill
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Black pepper

  1. Cut the cucumber in half lengthwise. Use a teaspoon to scrape the watery seeds out. Coarsely grate the cucumber using a box grater. Then wrap in paper towels or a tea towel and squeeze to remove excess liquid.
  2. Place cucumber in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients then mix to combine. Set aside for at least 20 minutes for the flavors to meld.
