Chicken Shawarma - RC Week 4

Who doesn't love an easy and wonderfully tasty recipe!!  Doesn't hurt when it's healthy too.  I will say, I never tasted anything like this combo of flavors before.  We will do this again.

4 medium chicken breasts, thin
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup non fat yogurt
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped parsley
pinch sea salt, pepper, tabasco

1 cup non fat yogurt
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp garlic puree
2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp all spice

In mixing bowl, combine all marinade ingredients, add chicken and marinate overnight.

Combine all dressing ingredients and refridgerate overnight.  Yup, a make ahead meal.  Woohoo!

Heat grill or grill pan over high heat.  Spray with nonstick spray.  Place chicken on grill and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side.  Cut cooked pieces into long strips and serve with warm pita, tahini sauce and tomato.
