Servings: 4 servings
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
- 2 plum tomatoes, diced
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 1 cup parsley, chopped
- 1/2 cup pickled red cabbage or pickled turnips (this is the secret to shawarma!)
- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1 lemon, quartered
- 1 pita, cut into 8 triangles
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice

- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, mix shawarma marinade ingredients together, stirring well to combine. Add chicken and toss to coat, then marinate 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, add lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, parsley, cabbage/turnips, hummus, lemon wedges and pitas to each bowl.
In a large oven-safe skillet, heat a bit of olive oil over med-high heat. Add chicken and saute for 3-4 minutes each side, then place in oven and cook for another 10 minutes.
Slice chicken once cooled and divide among each meal prep bowl. Eat all bowls within 5 days!
