While making a chicken shuwarma, I always purchase fresh chicken because you don't know how old already the chicken is. So go to your nearby chicken shop, get slaughtered the hen then and there and get fresh chicken to your home. That's a little way to ensure best quality of chicken.

We are trying to make that shawarma at home but we don't have any know how about its procedure and how exactly to make it. Does your recipe give us some idea?
