This combines two of my favourite Middle Eastern foods into one pot – Chicken Shawarma and Rice Pilaf. The Chicken Shawarma is the same recipe as the one I use for grilling (recipe here) with just quantities adjusted to suit using thigh cutlets cooked on the stove. The rice pilaf has been adapted from Yotam Ottolenghi’s Chicken with Cardamon Rice recipe from his cookbook “Jerusalem” (one of my all time favourite cookbooks!). Note that this is not an authentic way of preparing Chicken Shawarma! Real Shawarma is cooked on a rotisserie then shaved and served in a kebab. This is my one pot rice version – Shawarma flavours, made in one pot with rice!
