This is the authentic shawarma taste that I have always loved during my stay in the Middle East. Light and filling! It's totally divine!

  • Heat 2 inches oil in a heavy pot to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Fry potatoes in batches until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove chicken breasts from the marinade and cook until browned and no longer pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board; slice into thin strips.

  • Mix remaining 1 teaspoon garlic paste with mayonnaise in a bowl.

  • Spread garlic mayonnaise inside pita breads. Fill each pita with French fries, chicken slices, and pickles.

Made as written and these were great. Tip for the fries. Let them soak in cold water for 5 minutes. Change out the water and let them soak again. When you go to fry fry them for 3 minutes and take them out of the oil and let them drain on a paper towel for a few minutes. Fry them again. If you like them crispy then this is the way to do it.
