|Marinating gluten free chicken shawarma|
He keeps on telling me about this awesome chicken shawarma recipe he tried out from a friend and how everyone just loves it. Even one of my uncles that can be pretty picky loved the recipe. He really pumped up the recipe to be one of the best on his blog, so I really had to try it out. It also didn't hurt that everything about the Shawarma recipe is naturally gluten free. And guess what? Yummmmm! He was right, fantastic recipe! And it went perfect with the tzatziki like sauce he calls 'magic sauce' on his blog.

Shawarma is usually served as sliced chicken pieces. I was kind of lazy so just filleted the chicken instead of chopping it up. I filleted it to be sure it still absorbs the flavours nicely. I must say filleting the chicken vs. cutting it into smaller pieces was cheating a bit, but it really made things easier to grill. The recipe also called for boneless skinless chicken thighs, and we had boneless skinless chicken breasts, which was perfectly fine. It is just a more expensive meat to use on something that is going to have its flavour totally altered anyways.
The BBQ is my favourite cooking tool because you get some great smells off a BBQ, and the smells this chicken gave off were incredible. I usually come back into the house smelling more like a smoke and meat, but not this time.

We served it all with some rice to try and make it as much as a Mediterranean meal as possible.
