8Rebellyous Chicken TendersSliced Lengthwise into Thirds
¼TeaspoonGround Black Pepper
4Pita Bread or Soft FlatbreadWarmed
1Seedless English CucumberHalved and Sliced
1TablespoonFresh ParsleyRoughly Chopped
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a sheet pan with either a silicone baking mat or piece of parchment paper; set aside
In a large bowl, toss together the red onion, garlic, sliced tenders, olive oil, lemon juice, coriander, cumin, paprika, turmeric, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Once thoroughly coated with the seasonings, transfer the mixture to your prepared baking sheet. Roast for about 15 minutes, until the tenders are crispy and browned all over.
To assemble each serving, start with a warmed pita or flatbread as the base. Smear ¼ cup of the hummus down the center. Toss together the cucumber, tomato, parsley, and salt in a small dish. Spoon ¼ of the mixture on top, followed by ¼ of the chicken shawarma. Roll up the flatbread to eat it like a wrap, or enjoy as is like a mini pizza. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Notes: Add a light drizzle of hot sauce or tahini to add more heat and richness, if desired.
