Paleo Chicken Shawarma (Servings: 2-4)


2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breasts), chopped into bite-sized pieces

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

1/4 tsp. dried thyme

2 tsp. paprika

2 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. turmeric

1/2 tsp. allspice

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper


  1. Prepare the chicken and place in a large resealable plastic bag.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Pour the marinade over the chicken and toss to thoroughly coat.
  4. Place the plastic bag in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for at least 2 hours or more.
  5. Heat the grill. Skewer the chicken and grill for about 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning once or twice while grilling.
