When you hear shawarma, all you can think of are large chunks of assembled meat cooked on a spit roast. You'd think, there's no way you'll be able to recreate something like that at home. But this shawarma roast chicken recipe proves that you can create this spice-heavy dish sans any special tool.

The result is a smokey roasted chicken that's juicy and packed with flavor. It also works well with spiced rice, pita or flatbread, and lots of garlic sauce.
