It takes three separate steps, chicken, salsa and sauce but its really easy to prepare and cook. A great sandwich that you cook on the grill. You will be amazed how good the spices turn out. Traditional shawarma's are made with ground beef and shaved off as they cook, you can use the same spices for that as well if you make a loaf out of it and use a rotisserie.
