The aroma of the chicken kabab and the bread is heavenly, especially when it just comes out of the oven and the taste is delicious together. I plated this dish as follow, I made hummus with tahini (check the recipe on this website) and spread it on the plate. I cut the wrapped chicken into ½ inch pieces and placed it over the hummus then I add my favorite vegetables on top, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, green pepper, then a dash of olive oil and sumac on top.
