Great dinner: Oven-Roasted Chicken Shawarma

with 2 comments

This Sam Sifton recipe is great. I got three pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (family pack), so made 1.5 times the marinade recipe—e.g., 3/4 c of olive oil instead of 1/2 c.

I marinated for 11 hours, stirring occasionally, and the last couple of hours I put the stainless bowl of chicken on the kitchen counter so it could come to room temperature.

I cut the large red onion into eighths, vertically. Quartered looked too large and did not make enough pieces.

I cooked 30 minutes, which seemed fine, and I let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting it into chunks. Do the cutting up with shears, not a knife.

Tonight we had diced hothouse cucumber (aka English cucumber), halved cherry tomatoes, and crumbled feta, and it really could not have been better.

  2. It does indeed. One further change to the recipe, after reflecting on it: use shears to cut the meat into chunks. That would work better than using a knife.
