Most of Trader Joe’s pre-marinated meats are really good, and this Trader Joe’s chicken shawarma is no exception. The savory blend of a bunch of different spices in this marinade make for a super juicy grilled or baked chicken. Of course chicken thighs are really hard to not make juicy since they are so fatty and delicious. Onion, garlic, paprika and lemon juice are just a few of the ingredients that go into these Trader Joe’s chicken shawarma thighs. There is also natural rosemary flavor added to this, which is a bit of a bummer but pretty much standard now in many things at TJ’s, and better than the alternatives most groceries use…….…….

Chicken Shawarma Thighs at Trader Joe’s
These shawarma chicken thighs do really well when you add a cool condiment to them. I’ve grilled them and then put them on pita bread with some Trader Joe’s Tzatziki sauce many times, and they are amazing. Of course, if you have a roasting spit nearby and you want to make authentic chicken shawarma, please invite me over! I’d love to hear the different ways everyone has cooked these chicken thighs.
What is everyone’s favorite side dish or sauce to pair with this!? I definitely think some tahini and hummus would round out a pretty great meal. Trader Joe’s has always carried a ton of great Middle Eastern and Mediterranean products, even before most groceries had things like tahini or tzatziki in their aisles. The beauty of it is they are constantly rotating products in and out from that part of the world. So if you don’t find something you like now, you probably only have to wait a few months at most for a new creation to pop up at TJ’s. And if you can’t make it to TJs, give these items a try……
