Chicken shawarma is a Middle Eastern dish that uses a spiced marinade to make the meat tender and flavoursome. 

Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 1 hour. Serves 6-8 

Ingredients

  • Olive oil 
  • 1kg chicken thighs – cubed 
  • Coarse salt and coarsely ground black pepper

  • 100g green and black pitted olives

Method:

1. Begin by heating some olive oil in a pan, pat the cubed chicken with a paper towel to dry it and season with salt and pepper.
