No Heat Shawarma with Shrimp or Rotisserie Chicken

Chicken Shawarma


6 medium cooked shrimp, tails removed or 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken, skin removed

2 medium whole-grain pitas

4 Tbsp. prepared hummus

1/4 cup fresh curly parsley, washed, dried and chopped

4 leaves fresh mint, washed, dried and chopped

1/4 sweet white onion, diced

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 ripe tomato, 6 slices

1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced

Pepper to taste

Hot sauce to taste


If using chicken, remove the thighs. Reserve the rest of the rotisserie chicken for another no-heat meal. Remove the skin and bones from thighs and reserve. If using shrimp, cook until just pink.

Spread 2 tablespoons of hummus on each pita. In a small bowl, combine parsley, mint, onion and olive oil. Place 2 slices of tomato on one side of each pita. Repeat with the cucumber slices. Place one half of the chicken meat (or 3 shrimp) on the tomato and cucumber. Season with pepper and hot sauce. Garnish with the herb and onion mixture.
