Doner Kebabs

There are just some foods you fall in love with that you can only get every so often. Pumpkin shakes from Whitey's (an ice cream shop where my husband and I went to college), chicken tenders from Beef A Roo in the Rockford area, and doner kebabs from Zaytoon's in Dublin are just some foods that I absolutely love! Doners are available all over the place in Europe and rather rare in Milwaukee. So after some trial and error, I found a few recipes I combined together to make a pretty darn good doner kebab. Or one that will at least tide us over until we can travel to Europe and get one again! 

I used this recipe for the meat seasoning and this recipe to make a garlic aioli for the sauce. Together with a few other ingredients, it's fast becoming a staple dinner at our house! 

Doner Kebabs
Meat Marinade
1/3c. olive oil
2t. oregano
1t. paprika
2T. minced garlic
2 1/2T. lemon juice
1t. salt
2lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast cubed into 1 inch or smaller pieces

1. Combine everything in a large bowl or ziploc bag and let marinade for at least an hour. Cook in a skillet until cooked though.

Garlic Aioli
3/4c. mayo
3T. minced garlic
2 1/2T. lemon juice
3/4t. salt
1/2t. black pepper

1. While meat is marinating mix all aioli ingredients and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving. If desired use a blender to mix in the garlic and make the sauce smoother. 

Assembling the kebabs:
seasoned salt
sriracha sauce
red onion, sliced

1. Heat naan with olive oil and a bit of seasoned salt in a frying pan until golden brown. Add cooked chicken, drizzle with sauce, add a few drops of sriracha sauce as desired and pile on tomatoes, red onion and lettuce.
