Chicken shawarma wraps with homemade tahini sauce for dinner all week every week? YES please. They’re easy to make and SO much fun to eat. I can finally skip the trip to a restaurant and whip these up in less than an hour!
Ok though. Weather tangent: Mother Nature has absolutely lost it here in Seattle. She can’t. Make up. Her mind. The daily “what to wear” has actually become a struggle. On Monday we had the warmest day ever recorded in Seattle for that date, 68 degrees in March! The next day? Back down to the 40’s, windy, cloudy, and rain.
The trees are even confused too! They were all starting to bloom and now they seem frozen in time, awaiting the return of the sun. Well, me too man. Me too. I’m so over winter. It’s not even the weather either. I would love to leave our monster heater off, sit on the back porch in the sun, and wear summer dresses with flip flops.
Soon enough though, it’ll be summer and all I’ll want is scarves, boots, and sweater weather ????, complaining bitterly about the heat.
I’m so ridiculous. I should probably just enjoy the breeze whiles it’s still here!
Aaaaaanyway, those chicken shawarma wraps. A few tips:
- I like to marinate the chicken with a bunch of spices for a bit to give it some extra flavor. At least 30 minutes, preferably an hour if you’ve got the time!
- In my opinion, chicken shawarma wraps need a little cheesy goodness. Time for some feta cheese! Instead of already crumbled, I prefer to buy a small brick of feta in the brine and cut it up myself. SO much more flavor!
- Quick note about the tahini sauce. It’s delicious and so easy to make. However, be aware that it probably will not be delicious until you add salt. Ergo, “salt to taste”. Everyone’s taste buds are different, and for this particular sauce, it’s totally up to you. In my opinion, chicken shawarma wraps aren’t complete without a little drizzle of tahini!
OH by the by, our Chicago trip is ready to go! Got our flights and our place to hang, we can’t wait to check out the Windy City! If any fellow foodies have any recs for dinner, breakfast, what have you, please let me know! Obviously we’ll be hitting up some deep dish pizza, but any other thoughts are more than welcome.
Ok peeps. Grab some pita, top with all the goodies, and enjoy some chicken shawarma wraps tonight (in less than hour!). Recipe coming right up!Print
