Homemade Chicken Shawarma for those times you fancy a kebab. Recently with all the local takeaways closed this has been a lifesafer for the kebab monster. Bonus is these area cheap, tasty and because of the amount of fruit, salad and the ease of making a healthy probiotic sauce to go with it relatively healthy too.

I make these in the grill and an electric griddle pan works well too. During the summer it can even be done on the BBQ. It goes great in pitta or other flatbread or with salads.
