HEALTHY CHICKEN RECIPE - EPISODE TWO
SHAWARMA SPICED GRILLED CHICKEN AND GARLIC YOGURT
Disclaimer - I do not by any means create most these recipes. I just surf a lot of web, watch a lot of videos and then just amalgamate what I see and come up with this recipe. This I have taken from a place called skinny taste.
After the huge commercial success of "Waqai Bara Shwarama" which costs around Rs. 50 and is an assassinated disturbing Pakistani version of the Shwarama full of mayo and unhealthy/unhygienic cooked chicken I bring you the light on your stomach and amazingly marinated (NOT MARRIED; YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) Shwarama Spiced Grilled Chicken and to conquer your taste-buds completely Garlic Yogurt.
You might have to go to a supermarket for the full ingredients but trust me you will thank yourself for that effort once you take the very first bite of this. PLEASE DO NOT COMPARE IT WITH WAQAI BARA SHWARAMA OR I WILL SLAY YOU.
500 grams boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

First place your chicken on a flat surface and cover it with a plastic sheet.
Then take a meat hammer and smash your chicken until its half an inch thick.
One of the chicken reported me for domestic violence after watching this.
Then you need to prepare the marinade.
Put olive oil in a small or medium bowl.
Squeeze lemon juice in it and whisk properly until mixed.
Add minced garlic, salt, pepper, ground cinnamon, paprika, curry powder, cumin powder, turmeric and red pepper flakes. Mix until a thick coating is formed.
Cover and coat all the chicken breasts with the marinade. Leave it in the fridge for 1 hour at least.
Meanwhile the chicken marinades let's prepare the yogurt.
In a large bowl add minced garlic, salt and yogurt. Mix it together properly and add chopped coriander.
Garlic yogurt is ready.
AN HOUR PASSED SO QUICKLY
Put a tablespoon of oil on a grill pan and rub it properly with a brush.
Preheat it on medium low heat.
THIS IS SO PEACEFUL AND COMFORTING
Place the marinated chicken on the grill and cook it for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Take the chicken from the grill plan and let it rest over a flat surface for 5 minutes.
Cut it into strip or according to your own desire or serving style.
I have boiled some bran rice with this but you can eat it with plain white rice, pita bread or just plain with the yogurt.
Ladies and gentlemen this is one of the best grilled chickens I have tasted thanks for that combinations of spices. GIVE IT UP FOR Shawarma Spiced Grilled Chicken and Garlic Yogurt.
