But What is Chicken Shawarma & Where Does it Come From?

Authentically, Shawarma (also spelled shawurma or shawerma) is an Arabic rendering of Turkish ‘turning’, referring to the turning rotisserie. The shawarma technique is grilling a vertical stack of thin meat slices (lamb, chicken, beef, or mixed meats), in a cone-like shape on a vertical rotisserie and cutting it off as it cooks.

There are, however, other versions of this recipe that do not call for a pinning spit; still, some classic flavors and spices always make an impression. Shawarma is frequently served in flatbreads like pitas or as a sandwich or wrap.

Special insider secrets:  In the Middle East, shawarma is frequently served by street vendors with french fries either stacked inside the pita-wrapped meat or served on the side. Though there are many regional and local variations, its origins are in the flavor explosion of Mediterranean street cuisine. Our special, easy-to-use, and ready-made Teta Foods products make this recipe loved by all, kids and adults.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Raw Chicken – 1 Lb
  • Teta Foods Shawarma Marinade – ¼ Cup (Per Pound)
  • Pita Bread – 1 Loaf
  • Teta Foods Garlic Spread – 1 tsp
  • Tomatoes – 2 slices
  • Garlic Pickles – 2 slices


  • Mix the Teta Foods Shawarma Marinade with chicken and let it sit for at least half an hour. For best results, let the marinated chicken rest for 4-5 hours maximum.
  • Set the burners of the grill to medium-high heat. Pro tip- Grease the grate.
  • Cook the chicken for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Make sure that the chicken (the star of this dish) is beautifully caramelized and marked. Rest for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken on a work surface.
  • Take the pita bread and spread it as much as possible by gently separating the two sides. Place two pita halves for each sandwich on the plate, overlapping them slightly.
  • Spread the Teta Foods Garlic Dip & Spread inside the pitas.
  • Add tomato slices, warm chicken, and slices of garlic pickles.
  • Without securing the ends, tightly & firmly roll up the pitas. Toast on High using a Panini Press.
