Chicken Shawarma for Two Recipe

 

  • 1/2 cup shredded unpeeled English cucumber or peeled regular cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 8-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 6-inch whole-wheat pita breads or lavash
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. Stir cucumber, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Combine garlic powder, curry powder, pepper and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in another medium bowl. Slice chicken breast crosswise into 1/4-inch strips; toss with the spice mixture to coat. Add oil and toss to combine.
  4. Grill the chicken, turning once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
  5. To serve, spread half the cucumber-yogurt sauce on each pita (or lavash) and top with half the chicken, tomato and lettuce. Fold like a taco (or roll closed, if using lavash).
