This Middle Eastern inspired Chicken Shawarma with Vegetables is light, healthy and delicious. The best part is this tasty one pan meal is made in 25 minutes!
I fell in love with this Middle Eastern restaurant and street food favorite years ago. Although, the real Shawarma is cooked by stacking spice-marinated meats on a vertical spit, I created this homemade version a while back so I could enjoy it at home.
This time I wanted a whole one-pan meal I could make in no time, any time!
This is one of those dishes that always amazes me. A handful of common spices deliver maximum flavor.
In the case of this Sheet Pan Chicken Shawarma with Vegetables, you get all the flavor with minimum effort! That is my kind of meal!
After mixing the spices with some olive oil, lemon juice and a bit of water (the water helps to make the mixture smooth and pourable), all you need to do is place the chicken and the vegetables on a sheet pan and toss all the ingredients to combine. Don’t forget to line the sheet pan with foil for easy clean-up!
- Although I used chicken tenders cut in half for this recipe, you can use chicken breast or chicken thighs cut into small pieces (about 2-inch pieces).
- Use any vegetable you like! Asparagus, zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms are a few options.
- Add extra cayenne pepper to add some heat!
- Serve this meal with some toasted pita bread.
