Chicken Shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern dish that has gained global popularity. It is characterized by its layers of meat (usually chicken, but sometimes beef or lamb) that are marinated with a blend of spices and then grilled on a vertical spit. The meat is then thinly sliced and served in a pita or flatbread, often with fresh vegetables, tahini sauce, and other accompaniments. It is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a main course or as a handheld snack or appetizer. Chicken Shawarma is high in protein and can also provide a good amount of fiber when served with vegetables and whole grain bread.
