Chicken Shawarma Fries

Chicken shawarma on crisp French Fries along with all the toppings possible giving this starter dish burst of flavors.
These loaded Chicken Shawarma Fries are simply perfect when you feel like eating shawarma but don’t feel like getting out to the restaurant to grab one.  This was just an experiment because I love french fries, and I wanted to make a meal with it because I was super lazy that day. And luckily I had few pickled goodies in the fridge and marinated chicken too. 
So I thought why not try Chicken Shawarma Fries and I simply grilled the chicken, fried the frozen french fries and assembled it on a plate with all the possible toppings I could think of. And it tasted so good, I mean I felt it tasted better than the traditional shawarma in pita bread. At least that’s what I feel now, because I can stuff my face with a plate of this deliciousness at this moment. 😀
This is the third loaded french fries recipe in the blog. I had posted Cheese Fries with Ranch Sauce and Chicken Fries previously. Do check out those recipes if you haven’t. Its yummy. Hope you all will try out this recipe too. And please do let me know how you liked it, if you do give it a try. I love reading your feedback. 🙂

  1. I love this, it reminds me of the chicken shawarma platters from the Lebanese restaurant in Abu Dhabi where they serve the chicken on top of the chips, on top of Arabic bread, and the flavours from the chicken are soaked up in the bread
    It also makes me think of loaded nachos! All good associations
