    Chicken Rotisserie Shawarma

    I was really pleased with the results. While I used more of a Mediterranean spice mix this time, you could easily modify the spices to go hard at a Latin profile. The oil and lemon juice marinade base could be modified any number of ways. we had a little bit of chicken left over and I ate...
