The easiest way to make chicken shawarma at home

-   3 skinless, boneless chicken thighs (approximately 1 pound)

-  1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped or grated

-   1 garlic clove, minced

-   2 tablespoons plain yogurt

-   ¼ cup olive oil

-   1 tablespoon tomato paste

-   ½ teaspoon thyme

Ingredients:

Strain the grated onion in a mixing bowl. Save the juice and discard the leftovers.

Instructions

1

In the same bowl, add minced garlic, yogurt, vegetable oil, tomato paste, thyme, cumin, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and salt. Mix well to create a marinade.

2

Toss the chicken pieces in the marinade and coat them thoroughly.

3

Heat the cast-iron pan over medium-high heat and melt the butter.

4

Add the marinated chicken pieces and cook until slightly browned, stirring occasionally.

5

Remove the pan from heat and enjoy your chicken shawarma.

6

Add a dash of smoked paprika for a smoky twist or cayenne pepper for heat. If you're out of yogurt, you can swap it for keto-friendly mayonnaise. Just feel free to experiment with new ingredients.
