Compiled Recipe – Chicken Shawarma Salad

Chicken Shawarma Salad

* ½ tsp ground cumin
* 1 tsp ground cardamom
* ½ tsp ground coriander
* 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
* 1 cup yogurt
* 4 boneless chicken breasts
* 1 medium head iceberg lettuce, core removed, sliced
* 2 heads baby romaine lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
* salt (to taste)
* ground black pepper (to taste)
* 1 head garlic, peeled
* 1 small potato, peeled, chopped small
* 2 teaspoons lemon juice
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
* salt (to taste)

1) Mix spices, garlic and yogurt in a medium bowl. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and then place in a marinade. Toss to mix thoroughly. Chill overnight or at least 2 hours.

2) Meanwhile, make the sauce: Put garlic and tomatoes in a small saucepan and fill with enough water to cover them. Place over medium heat, simmer and cook until garlic and potatoes have softened. Transfer to the bowl of a mini food processor, reserving liquid, then process. As the processor is running, drizzle in lemon juice and olive oil and season with salt, to taste. Process until sauce is the consistency of a dip. Thin down with a reserved liquid, if needed. Chill until needed.

3) Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Remove chicken from its marinade and grill until cooked through. Set aside to rest.

4) Divide lettuce among 4 bowls. Chop chicken into chunks and use to top each bowl. Serve with garlic sauce on the side or drizzle over each bowl.
