Ingredients

    2 Tbls fresh lemon juice
    1 tsp curry powder
    2 tsp olive oil
    3/4 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp cumin
    3 garlic cloves minced
    1 lb skinless boneless chicken breasts cut into 16 strips

Directions

Combine all the seasoning in a large bowl (ziplock bag). Add chicken; toss well to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes (I put mine in the fridge for about 2 hours because I was getting everything ready early)
Cook chicken (grilled or in a pan on the stove) until done, about 4 minutes per side

This makes 4 servings and is good on pita bread or over a lettuce salad. You can also make a sauce/dressing with lemon juice, garlic, Fat Free Greek Yogurt, salt and tahini. Play around with the proportions until you get the consitancy you like. Go light on the tahini as it is LOTS of calories, but really good.

  • Incredible!
    Very tasty. It didn't taste like any schwarma I've had before but I still found it very good. Flavorful and fragrant. Served with brown rice. - 4/18/11
