Chicken Shawarma Skewers with Garlic Lime Avocado Tzatziki

Cook up these tasty skewers for a National Garlic Month favorite.

Time: 30 Minutes

Servings: 4 Shawarma Sticks

Difficulty: Easy-Medium



4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Fillet Strips

1/2 of a Lime Juiced

1 tsp Water

2 Cloves Garlic, Minced

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Oregano

1/2 tsp Paprika

Salt & Pepper

Garlic Lime Avocado Tzatziki

1/2 Lime

1/4 Avocado

1/4 Plain Yogurt

1 Clove Garlic, Minced

Pinch of Oregano

1/4 tsp Dill

Salt & Pepper


In a bowl, mix together lime juice, water, garlic, cumin, oregano, paprika, salt & pepper. Add in chicken fillet strips and marinate at room temperature for at least 20 minutes.

In the meantime, make the Lime Avocado Tzatziki by mixing all of the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Adjust seasoning if needed and set aside.

Once it has been at least 20 minutes, remove the chicken from the marinade and slide each chicken fillet onto individual skewers (Tip: Before adding the chicken strips to the bamboo sticks, soak the bamboo sticks in water for 5 minutes).

Heat a grill pan to medium-high.

Place chicken on the grill pan until golden brown and cooked through. Coat the pan with avocado oil if it is not a non-stick pan.

Transfer to a plate and serve with the garlic lime avocado tzatziki sauce. It also pairs well with sides like lentil patties.
