Chicken Shwarma

By January 26, 2017March 21st, 2022No Comments

Ready for another super healthy recipe to keep your New Year’s goals on track? I am all about Indian food and wanted to create a recipe for marinated chicken skewers that was not lacking for flavor. These skewers of chicken and vegetables are an explosion of flavors in your mouth. Your waistline is going to thank me. Dip this spicy, lemony chicken in this cool, cream sauce and you’re going to be in heaven. Wrap them in a warm pita bread or serve with some brown rice. Either way, I hope you love them 😉
