If you are looking for a delicious and easy way to make shawarma pockets at home, you have come to the right place. In this blog post, I will show you how to make special shawarma pockets with chicken, salad and sauce. These pockets are perfect for iftar in Ramadan, or any other occasion. They are filling, flavorful and fun to eat. To make your own shawarma pockets, you will need a grill pan, some butter, pita bread, chicken, salad and sauce. You can make them in a few simple steps for instant use in your recipe or store the marinated chicken in the refrigerator for later use. Here is what you need to do:

Step 1: Marinate the chicken.

Cut the boneless chicken into thin strips and place them in a bowl. Add the crushed garlic, yoghurt, BBQ sauce, tikka or tandoori masala, salt, black pepper, red chilli crushed, paprika powder, vinegar and soy sauce. Mix well and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.

Step 2: Cook the chicken.

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat and fry the chicken strips until golden and cooked, stirring occasionally. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes. You can also grill the chicken if you prefer.

Step 3: Prepare the salad.

Grate the cucumber and squeeze out the excess water. Chop the cabbage, onion and bell peppers into small pieces. Mix them in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Make the shawarma sauce.

You will need mayonnaise, yoghurt, garlic, lemon juice, salt and black pepper. Watch a video on how to make the special shawarma sauces:

Step 5: Bake the pita breads.

First, brush some butter on the grill pan and heat it over medium-high heat. Then, place the pita bread on the pan and cook for a few minutes on each side until they are slightly charred and crisp. Alternatively, you can use store-bought pita breads and warm them in the oven. Also, watch this video on how to make homemade pita bread:
