These shawarma bowls are pretty much all of the best things all combined into one easy & healthy meal:
- smoky grilled chicken shawarma (sounds super fancy, but it is super easy to make!)
- quinoa (because it's healthy!)
- all of the toppings: lemony cabbage slaw, pickled red onions, thinly sliced cucumber, salty crumbles of feta, big fat drizzles of olive oil, a sprinkle of fresh basil served with a pillowy & soft warm pita (basically whatever your happy little heart desires:)
Here's the instruction to make this delicious flavor-rich meal:
1. Marinate the chicken: Place the chicken in a large Ziplock bag or baking dish. Add in the garlic cloves, olive oil, honey, lemon juice, cumin, smoked paprika, cinnamon, ginger, oregano, turmeric, cayenne, Kosher, & ground black pepper. Toss to combine, coating the chicken evenly in the shawarma marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or up to 3 days.
2. Make the lemony cabbage slaw: Meanwhile, as the chicken marinates, make the lemony cabbage slaw. Add the cabbage, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Set aside, or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
3. Cook the quinoa according to package directions. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
4. Grill the chicken: Once the chicken has marinated for at least 2 hours & you’re ready to cook dinner, preheat your grill or grill pan (see Recipe Notes) to medium-high heat. Add the chicken, cooking for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board to rest for a minute or two, then thinly slice.
5. Assemble the bowls: Add a large spoonful of hummus to the bottom of a large, shallow bowl. Use the back of a spoon to swoop the hummus across the bottom of the bowl. Add in the lemony cabbage slaw, a spoonful of quinoa, & sliced chicken shawarma. Top with pickled red onions, thinly sliced cucumbers, crumbled feta, and a sprinkling of fresh basil.
6. Serve the hummus bowls with a spritz of lemon and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil as desired. Enjoy!
