Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Shawarma for Two

1/2 cup Cucumber, Peeled
2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed
1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil
2 Pita bread
1 small tomato, chopped
1 cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce

Recipe Directions for Chicken Shawarma for Two

  1. Preheat grill to medium.

  2. Stir cucumber, yogurt, tahini, lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
