Chicken Shwarma in the Slow Cooker

I ran across a recipe for Chicken Shwarma on the blog, Jersey Girl Cooks.  Lisa roasted her chicken in the oven and it looks fabulous.  But being the lazy cook that I am, I decided this would work in the slow cooker.

Hot dog!  I was right!  My family loved this meal and I know I’ll be making it again.

I only made minor alterations to Lisa’s recipe.  I changed the cooking method and more than doubled the recipe so it would feed my family.  I never could find tahini, so I served it with cucumber-yogurt sauce instead.  If I ever find tahini paste (Walmart, are you listening?)

Chicken Lettuce Wraps – Freezer Cooking Recipe

The filling for these lettuce wraps is perfect for making ahead and freezing.  I see this becoming one of my vacation food recipes.

The chicken is seasoned with garlic, soy sauce and some vinegar.  Water chestnuts and green onions add to the flavors.  I based the recipe on Spicy Garlic Chicken Pizza, another winning freezer recipe.

The chicken filling would also be great served over rice, but we liked the crunch of the lettuce.
