Best Shawarma Ever
My neighbour Karen made this for me and omg it was delicious. I changed a few things but kept the basics the same. So good! You simply MUST make the garlic sauce as well. The link is embedded below in the instructions.

Lay the flat side of the onion in a baking dish. Insert 3 wooden skewers in a triangle shape in the onion. I had smaller onions so placed them as shown in the picture.
Layer the chicken piece by piece in a stack, leaving a bit of wood sticking out to insert the second piece of onion onto.
