A Little bit of Chicken Fry Hummus Pita
Chicken-Fry Greekish Pita
This is a mash up recipe that is sort of Greek, Middle Eastish with an American twist. I think. Recently I was in Canada and one of my buddies wanted to take me to this Shwarama joint for lunch. It was like a Chipotle or Freebirds but served Greek food. Unrelated to that experience, I recently saw a review of a new joint in town and the picture had french fries in the burrito.
So I decided that the potatoes would balance out the lemony garlicy chicken I was making so came up with a Pita filled with fresh made hummus, grilled chicken and french fries that were seasoned with my fry seasoning. It turned out great. The hummus and chicken pared well given the lemon and garlic and then the fries give it a nice texture balance but also some seasoning depth with my Fry Seasoning. It was really good and might be a nice departure from tacos, burritos, sandwich or hamburger.
Whole Wheat Pita
Chicken Breasts (cubed into kebab size)
1 lemon juiced and zested
4 cloves of garlic
2 tbs of Worchestershire
1/4 cup of Ranch Dressing
2 tsp of Tabasco
Packaged Shoestring Fries
My French Fry Seasoning https://whiskeynwry.com/?s=Fry+Seasoning
2 cans of garbanzo beans (reserve liquid if needed to thin it out)
1/4 cup of Tahini paste
4 cloves of garlic
2 lemons juiced (add a little at a time and taste)
2 tbs of Olive Oil
1 tbs of Tabasco
pinch of cumin
1. Make your hummus by adding the beans, olive oil, tahini, garlic, tabasco into a food processor and slowly add your spices and lemon juice tasting along the way. Store it in the fridge until needed.
2. Go ahead and fire up your french fries and cook according to the package. About 3/4 of the way through the cooking process, sprinkle the fry salt and give it a toss. Finish cooking your fries.
3. Get your grill fired up and skewer your chicken pieces leaving a little space between them. Don’t smash them up or you might end up with some raw chicken or have to grill it longer. I cooked them for about 8 minutes over the fire to put some char on them. Then I moved them to other side of the grill and cooked until done.
4. The pitas I bought didn’t have a pocket so I had to go with the fold over. I heated the pita in the microwave to soften it up. I spread hummus over the entire inside. I added my seasoned fries and then my chicken. Topped it with a little more hummus and served.
