“Easy and delicious chicken shawarma recipe. You will notice that the marinade and sauce are mostly identical, so you can simply mix all of the marinade/sauce ingredients together, minus the olive oil and tahini, and divide in two. Add the olive oil to the marinade, and reserve the rest for the sauce. If you do this, however, do not add the tahini until you are ready to use it, as it will significantly thicken the sauce.”
