On the menu Jan 14 — Jan 20

Traditionally made with meat roasted on a spit, shawarma is a popular Middle Eastern dish that we’ve streamlined for at-home preparation. In this Encore Recipe, chicken is marinated with cumin, paprika, turmeric, fresh lemon juice, onion, and garlic for vibrant flavor—then simply seared until tender. Paired with red onion and a refreshing tomato-cucumber salad, this dinner gets a drizzle of creamy tahini, too. Warm naan bread is perfect for scooping.
