Chicken Pita Sandwich


I love Chicken Shawarma sandwiches, but if your buying them for a family it can get expensive! My son will get a sandwich once and a while at his favourite Shawarma shop in town. Making it home isn’t quite the same, but its still good!

When you go to a shawarma place, you notice the meat being sliced off like Doner kebab or Gyros meat. You can get beef, lamb or chicken. I love all three, but prefer the chicken. Some places will add french fries in the sandwich while others don’t.

When I was a kid I had a friend who was Lebanese and  her mom always added fries in her sandwiches…so I do the same.  Continue reading “Chicken Pita Sandwich” »

Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

Lemon Garlic Roasted Chicken

This is one of the ways I love to prepare roasted chicken, it has so much flavour, the juices makes for a great gravy or sauce. If you like you can butterfly your chicken by removing the back bone….I actually prefer roasting chicken that way…the thigh’s and legs get a nice and crispy skin that way. If you choose to butterfly your chicken, squeeze some lemon juice over the chicken and slice some lemon and lay the slices over the chicken, add the fresh herbs and seasoning over the skin.

Semi- Fried Chicken

Semi-Fried Chicken

I call this chicken semi- fried as I don’t fry it the whole way through. I love the taste of fried chicken….but fried greasy food does not sit well in my tummy. The way I prepare it, the oil is not being soaked up by the chicken,  I use just enough oil to lightly brown the skin.

I simply brown the skin so it gets crispy and fried like texture while its baking.

So here goes to make my semi- fried chicken! Continue reading “Semi- Fried Chicken” »
