Nigerian Shawarma (Chicken and Beef Shawarma Recipe Provided)

Nigerian shawarma, nigerian beef shawarma, Nigerian Shawarma (Chicken and Beef Shawarma Recipe Provided)

Nigerian Shawarma  is the ”Nigerian version’ of the famous Shawarma (made with beef or chicken filling).

This tasty snack has become a popular meal on the streets of Nigeria and is also one of the most requested recipes I have received.

Years back, I used to get mine at the eatery and also wondered how I could re-make this tasty snack at home, with basic spices readily available in most Nigerian kitchens; including the Shawarma bread.

After some trials and errors, I finally got the perfect mix. Now I present to you, the most delicious, tasty , mouthwatery, palate-tingling Nigerian  shawarma you can ever get ☺.

This recipe is deliciously addicting and so easy to prepare, that you’ll want to make Shawarma everyday.

All said, this is my Nigerian Chicken Shawarma Recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients for Nigerian Chicken Shawarma

This makes about 6+ large Shawarma wraps

  • 2 Chicken breasts(de-boned/boneless)
  • 2 Chicken Thighs(a.k.a Chicken laps)(de-boned/boneless)(You can also use de-boned/boneless beef )
  • 6+ Shawarma bread(either pita bread/flour tortilla wraps)
  • 1 small sized Cabbage(cut into thin strips)
  • 3 medium sized Carrots(grated or cut into thin strips)
  • 1 large Cucumber(cut into thin strips&circles)
  • 2 big Tomatoes(cut into thin strips)
  • 1 medium sized Onions(cut into thin strips)
  • Ketchup
  • Mayonnaise(see how to make it at home)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable /olive oil(for stir frying)

For the marinade:

  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 teaspoon curry(I used ducros brand)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder/2 teaspoons minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 large chicken stock cube/bouillon cube(crushed into powder)
  • Half a teaspoon black pepper
  • Chilli pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste(optional because the stock cube already contains salt)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable /Olive oil

Nigerian Chicken and beef shawarma


  1. Wash and cut the vegetables into thin strip(if you haven’t done that yet) and set aside.  Also Cut the chicken or beef into thin strips and set aside.  Tip: I always recommend,using a combination of Chicken thighs&Breasts,because the fat from the thighs adds extra flavor and compliments the taste of the chicken breast.
  2.  Place the chicken strips into a bowl, add the marinade and mix thoroughly until well incorporated. Then cover and store in the fridge for 2 to 24 hours(depending all how much time you have).  Tip: I actually don’t wait 24 hours, I just  store overnight or for 2-3 hours,but I realized that the longer the meat marinades, the better it tastes.
  3.  In a pan, heat up a tablespoonful of oil.  Add the marinated chicken/beef & stir fry until juicy and brown. Scoop unto a plate and set aside.

4. Mix some mayonnaise and ketchup together(”mayo-ketch” spread).
Place a shawarma bread on a clean flat surface and cut into two equal sizes(that’s if you are using a large pita bread).

  But if using a very flat bread or tortilla wraps, simply, spread the ”mayo-ketch” on it and then fill it with the sliced vegetables on one end and Sprinkle some chili pepper(optional);

Then fold the bread, tuck in the edge, and roll to form a shawarma wrap…yummyyyy!

  Tip: if you want to warm it up a bit, place on a heated pan for 3 minutes(the closed edge facing the pan). If you have a microwave or sandwich maker, feel free to use those too.

And your Homemade Nigerian Chicken Shawarma is ready… Enjoy!

        The Shawarma was superb and the flavour alone got some neighbours and relatives closer to have that yummious bite. This recipe made me a hero and since then I have been feeling like a super chef. I had actually tried it again and I have gotten nothing but superb Shawarma.

        • April 11, 2019 / 7:18 pm

          Gidi, you have to cut the beef in strips and marinate with spices-
          Leave for about 2hrs or more in the marinade, so that the meat can soak in all the spices
          Then use as indicated in this shawarma recipe.

    Hi Nky,you said peak milk evaporated milk cup is about 170grams,how do u get the exact quantity since flour and sugar don't weigh the same?eg a cup of flour cannot be 170grams while a cup of sugar is 170g as well.pls I need ur response thanks

    • Nky Lily Lete
      June 3, 2016 / 12:05 pm

      Hi Nkem, that's why you should get a scale but in the absence of one, you'll have to make smart estimates , using the tins or cups you have.Just know that 1 cup of sugar weighs more than flour by 80 grams, more or less.

      Thanks Verere, marinate is simply mixing the chicken in the ''marinade mix'' writiten in the recipe, then cover and leave it in the fridge for a few hours or overnight, before stir frying. Do let me know how it turns out.

      Thanks dear. You can place the sliced bread on a board and flatten it with a rolling pin. As for agege bread, just fill the bread with the shawarma filling and enjoy 🙂

      Hi dear,I want to believe that you cooked it for too long, and that dried the bread out. The tortilla bread should only be cooked for a few seconds.. the moment you begin to see bubbles turn over to the other side and brown it a little and you'll have a great tortilla 🙂

      Hi Romeo, you really don'rt need a grill .To warm up the shawarma, place on a heated pan for 3 minutes(the closed edge facing the pan). If you have a microwave , grill or sandwich maker, feel free to use those too. Thanks for the lovely compliments
