Chicken Shawarma Bowls. Or Middle Eastern Bowls. Or My Favorite Things in One Bowl.

I started trying to change the words to “My Favorite Things” to include chicken shawarma and tahini instead of whiskers on kittens, but let’s just say it was falling really flat. So, in a very non-sing-songy way I would like to tell you: here are a few of my favorite things. All in one bowl.

This is sort of a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean take on your standard Chipotle-esque bowl. Just like that one, it has a protein, beans, rice, and something that…sort of resembles salsa? Personally, I like to mix everything together or take bites of a couple things at once (folded up in a pita is optional but encouraged). My kid is more interested in eating things separately and then drinking tahini sauce as though it’s a shot. Bottoms up? It’s your call.

Although there are a few components to this meal, they all come together quickly and you really shouldn’t have a problem making this as a weeknight meal (assuming, of course, you had time to marinate the chicken in the morning or night prior).  It’s healthy, filling without feeling heavy, and it just plain tastes good. Also,it includes about a million cloves of garlic and tons of tahini, so what are you waiting for?

  1. I love big bowls with lots of different flavors in every bite like this! And Middle Eastern/Mediterranean flavors are some of my favorites!
