Chicken Shwarma in the Slow Cooker

Don't forget to enter the My Memories Suite Giveaway - Going on now!!


Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.
Last Friday I was scrolling through twitter when I saw the words "Chicken Schwarma in the Slow Cooker" - as you know, I love a good slow cooker recipe and I am always on the look out for them.  I clicked over to Eat at Home and immediately knew this was going to be dinner that night!  Let me start by saying the aroma was magnificent!!  I can't tell you how good my house smelled (and not just that day- it lingered and in a good way.)  Neighbor boy was playing with the kids and every time they would come back in the house, he would stop and sniff (again - in a good way.)  I am happy to report that this recipe was a huge hit with Little Man and Sweet Girl - Hubby thought it was amazing too.  I served this with some coconut rice and Cucumber Raita. I was originally going to make pitas for it but we had an abundance of tortillas in our house so I served this with tortillas instead. Enjoy!!

recipe adapted from Eat at Home
What you need:
6 Tbs. lemon juice
6 Tbs. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. curry powder
a pinch of cayenne pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3 lbs. boneless chicken thigh strips (I used regular thighs not strips)

What you do:
Stir lemon juice, olive oil, salt, curry, cayenne pepper and garlic together in a small bowl. Place chicken in slow cooker. Pour olive oil mixture over the chicken. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
