The Avengers: A MARVELous Meal
The Avengers Chicken Shawarma
Chicken Shawarma is difficult to make at home because the traditional method is time consuming and requires specific appliances that most people don’t own. So we developed this easy version to try at home! We combine the traditional seasonings with an easy preparation technique, giving you all of the flavors that you crave and leaving you with enough time to relax and enjoy The Avengers with your friends and family.
For the Chicken:
Combine the garlic, ginger, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil, spices, pomegranate molasses, and ¼ of a yellow onion in a blender and blend. Pour the marinade into a plastic bag with the chicken tenders and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Once the chicken has marinated, heat a large pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Cook the chicken in the pan on a medium high heat for 5 minutes on each side.
For the Wrap:Fry the thinly sliced eggplant in an inch of olive oil on high heat until golden brown, about a minute and a half per side.
Once the eggplant is cooked, blot it with a paper towel and set aside. Heat your bread over a burner or on the oven until warm. Place a generous dollop of hummus on the bread followed by a few eggplant slices, a nice portion of slaw and a chicken tender. Drizzle hot sauce over the chicken and wrap.
