One thought on “Nadiya’s healthy chicken shawarma with slaw recipe on this Morning

  1. I made this and I was concerned about adding a whole tablespoon of salt – it sounded like a lot of salt. When it was cooked, I sliced it and tasted it and it had been pretty much ruined by salt! This is the saltiest thing I have ever eaten and I like salt. I think the recipe needs adjusting, to “half a teaspoon of salt” or “no salt”. It’s a terrible recipe and extremely unhealthy…because of the ridiculously high amount of salt.
