Niya's Chicken Shawarma & Potato Wedges

I found a recipe for Chicken Shawarma on Niya's World and tried it out... It's very tasty! The only problem I had is, when I added the lemon juice to the tahini, it started to solidify and turned into the consistency of peanut butter. I'm not sure what I must have done wrong, I was stirring while I was adding, but it didn't help. The flavor was good, but I was looking for more of a sauce and not a spread. Either way, the flavor was nice. I wrapped them in foil and let them heat through the pita. They were good warmed up the next day, too. I made some potato wedges on the side, I coated some cut potatoes with olive oil, salt and Zatar and baked at 450 degrees farenheit until crispy. I got the recipe for pita bread here, as I do not like any store bought pita breads.

~ Thanks, everyone :)

~ Thanks, Rush... Of course you could grill it, as frying isn't even traditional and it still tastes great... I would have grilled it, too, if I had a grill!
