Shawarma Chicken & Butternut Squash Traybake

I have a house full of hungry teenage boys this weekend and instead of them ordering from the local kebab shop 🤢 I’m hoping I can lure them away from a doner kebab with this Shawarma Chicken.

Packed with flavour and a few nutritional goodies for good measure this is a lovely family meal. I have used thighs but if you want to use breasts, then add the chicken 15 minutes after the squash goes in. Have a super weekend!

Serves 4


8 Chicken thighs

2 red onions - each sliced into 8 wedges

3 cloves garlic - crushed

380-400g butternut squash - peeled and sliced

1-2 tablespoons Shawarma paste - I used @belazu_co

Pomegranate seeds

Coriander - to serve



Preheat the oven to 210 degrees.

Add the squash onions and garlic to a large pan and mix with a little oil. Coat the chicken in the paste and sit on top of the squash and onions. Drizzle with oil and season generously.

Cook for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and tender. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and coriander.

Serve with flatbread or rice
