From the coco kitchen
  1. Heat a large skillet with 1-2 tbsp of olive oil. Once the oil is hot, cook shawarma strips for about 5-7 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Set aside.
  2. Finely dice cucumber and tomatoes. Toss with the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tbsp of olive oil, ground cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Add finely chopped parsley and mix well.
  3. Slice pita lengthwise, in half and toast or warm.
  4. Assemble your pita pockets and finish off with drizzled Coco Maple Tahini. A fun idea could be to create a pita pocket bar and let everyone assemble their sandwiches how they’d like! A bunch of other toppings can include pomegranate seeds, lemon wedges, red cabbage, and Aleppo pepper
