1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, sliced into thin pieces
1 yellow onion
Salt and pepper
Romaine lettuce, shredded
Grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup tahini
Juice from 2 lemons
1/2 tsp Spanish Roja Garlic Powder
Season the sliced chicken thighs with shawarma spices, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Chop the yellow onions, then mix into chicken to marinate for an hour, allowing the flavors to infuse.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Then, spread the chicken mixture evenly in a glass pan. Bake in the oven until juicy and tender, with an internal temperature of 165°F.
Meanwhile, make the creamy garlic tahini sauce. Mix tahini, Spanish Roja garlic powder, lemon juice, and salt together. Ado cold water gradually, 1 tablespoon at a time, to achieve the desired consistency. After about 3-4 tablespoons you should have a light, creamy mixture.
Once ready, the cooked chicken and onions are mixed with shredded romaine lettuce and halved grape tomatoes, and drizzled with the garlic tahini sauce before being tossed together in a large serving bowl.
Serve with warm pitas and enjoy!
