For The Shawarma Spice Mix

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon allspice
  • 1.5 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1.5 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1.5 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground clove

For The Chicken

  • 500 grams boneless skinless chicken, cut into large cubes
  • 400 grams chickpeas (1 large can)
  • 1 red onion, roughly diced
  • 300 grams cherry Tomatoes, whole
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 2 tablespoons shawarma spice mix (see details above)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
  • Cut chicken in to large-ish cubes. You can use chicken breasts, tenders, or thighs, just make sure they are boneless and skinless.
  • Throw the chicken cubes into a bowl and add tomatoes, onions, shawarma spice mix, olive oil, and lemon juice and zest to the bowl. Mix well to combine.
  • Spread the mixture out on a baking sheet so nothing is overlapping and everything has good access to the heat of the pan, and the oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Serve in a large bowl with hummus, salad, fresh herbs and pickles, (rice would be good too). This is a great opportunity to let people build their own bowls the way they like. Enjoy!
