Ingredients:

Chicken Shawarma

Salad

  • 6 c mixed baby greens
  • 1 c cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 c fresh basil torn
  • 1 avocados sliced

Basil-Lemon Vinaigrette

  • 1 c fresh basil
  • 2 cloves garlic smashed
  • .5 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp olive oil

Instructions:

  • In a bowl whisk olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, curry powder, cumin, and coriander until combined.
  • In a shallow sealable container or in a large Ziploc bag, combine chicken strips and marinade. Cover or seal and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (or marinate overnight if possible).
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a tiny bit of olive oil, add the chicken and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes turning regularly until juices run clear.
  • While chicken cooks, make the vinaigrette. In a food processor (or small blender), process the basil, garlic, salt, and lemon juice until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the oil. Blend until combined. Set aside.
  • To make the salads, add the greens in a large bowl and toss them with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken on top along with the tomatoes, basil, and avocado. Drizzle the bowl with the basil-lemon vinaigrette.
