Let me start by saying that this Chicken Döner Recipe is not the same as visiting your favorite Döner stand in Germany at 1 am looking for delicious nourishment to get you through an evening of celebrating with friends. BUT… it’s a pretty darn good recipe, and it might just satisfy your cravings for those fabulous flavors. And since it’s made with chicken, you can sort of pretend it’s healthy-ish.
I know, there are also going to be a few people out there grumbling that Döner isn’t German, it’s Turkish! Well… yes… it first came to Germany in 1969 to the city of Reutlingen … but shortly after that, a Döner stand opened at Berlin’s Zoo Station, and the popularity EXPLODED! In fact, a 2007 survey determined that Döner was the most characteristic food of Berlin (pretty amazing, when you consider that the Currywurst was invented there in 1949).
Now… this recipe is not made on a stand up Spiess…. but you can make it in your home oven, or even on a grill (oooohhhhh or on a Schwenker grill!). My daughter REFUSES to eat onions, so I use cucumbers for her instead. And we put some Tzatziki on it just for a nice fresh punch. Add the toppings you like (you can even add hot sauce!) serve it on a Pita or over a salad… and just ENJOY your Erzatz Döner!
