This is great! The meat comes out so juicy and flavorful! I omitted the salt and used fat free Greek yogurt with the hummus. So good! I took advantage of a good sale on chicken leg quarters, so I cooked both thighs and drumsticks this way and used the thighs as directed. The drumsticks were great sliced over a salad with Greek dressing for lunch the next day! Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely yummy. It tastes as good, if not better than the chicken doner from my local kebab house.

Very good! Not quite like the ones you get on the street in New York or Europe, but very close and my craving was satisfied! I recommend this recipe to anyone craving a Döner kebab! These are tasty and pretty easy to make too.
