Spicy Chicken Shawarma Salad

Spicy Chicken Shawarma
 3 tbsp parsley fresh, minced
 3/4 tsp salt
 1 tsp crushed red pepper
 1/2 tsp ground ginger
 1/2 tsp ground cumin
 1/4 tsp ground coriander
 7 tbsp low-fat plain Greek yogurt
 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh
 4 garlic cloves minced
 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts boneless, skinless, thinly sliced
 1 bunch lettuce cleaned and chopped
 1 cup cucumber chopped
 1 cup tomato chopped
Lemon vinaigrette
 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
 1/4 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed preferred
 1 tsp kosher salt
 3/4 tsp ground black pepper freshly ground
 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine the parsley, salt, red pepper flakes, ginger, cumin, and coriander in a large bowl and mix to combine.


Stir in the yogurt, lemon juice and garlic cloves. Add the chicken to the bowl and stir to coat.


Let sit in the refrigerator to marinate for at least an hour, or overnight.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.


Working in batches, add the marinated chicken pieces to the skillet. You don't want to overcrowd the pan so the chicken can brown. Cook the chicken, stirring frequently, for about 6 minutes or until browned and cooked through.


Remove the chicken from the pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels.


Put some more oil in the pan and repeat the process until all the chicken is cooked.


In a salad bowl, whisk together the mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to combine to make vinaigrette.


Add the cleaned lettuce leaves, the cucumbers, tomatoes and chicken. Mix to combine.
