Chicken Shawarma Sheet Pan Dinner

This recipe is everything you LOVE about Chicken Shawarma all on one sheet pan and ready for your oven in just a few simple steps!

For this Chicken Shawarma Sheet Pan Dinner I used warm spices that taste amazing when cozied up in a pita along with fresh tomato, cucumber, and special tahini sauce that is easy to make using Spectrum Organic Spanish Unrefined extra virgin olive oil.

Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
        Yield: Serves 6


    •    2 tsps salt
    •    2 tsps cumin
    •    2 tsps tumeric
    •    1/2 cup peppers
    •    2 tsps cinnamon
    •    2 tsps cardamom
    •    1 cup plain Greek yogurt
    •    2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
    •    1 purple onion, cut into 1/2 inch thin slices
    •    2 large red bell peppers, cut into 1/2 inch thin strips
    •    3 large boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced into 1 inch strips

For Tahini sauce:

    •    1/2 tsp salt
        1 cup Tahini
    •    2/3 cup water
    •    1/2 cup lemon juice
    •    4 garlic cloves, minced
    •    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


For serving:

    •    4 - 8 Pita bread
    •    1 Roma tomato, sliced
    •    1/2 English cucumber diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl combine the yogurt with cumin, cardamom, turmeric, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Add the chicken to the marinade and toss until fully coated. Set aside.
  4. Spread 1 tablespoons of olive oil onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Arrange chicken, onions, bell peppers and peppadews on the baking sheet and drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  5. Place the baking sheet on the center rack and bake for 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and onions and peppers are tender.
  6. Prepare the tahini sauce by placing all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and whisking with a fork until smooth. **It will look like it is seperating for a few minutes before it all comes together, this is normal!
  7. Serve chicken and roasted veggies in pita bread topped with a generous amount of tahini sauce, cucumber and tomatoes. Enjoy!
