Pasture Raised Chicken Schwarma with Greek Salad and Tzatziki Sauce Recipe

This is a delicious meal featuring 1915 Farm Pasture Raised Chicken Thighs. It's amazing served over Greek salad, with a side of tzatziki sauce, hummus, and pita chips. Although it would also be great in a pita like a gyro, or served with rice and Greek potatoes. The recipe below is pretty simple and easy, and it makes for a flavorful, healthy, lunch or dinner.

For the Chicken – 
In a large bowl, combine the cumin, turmeric, coriander, garlic powder, paprika, and cloves.
Pat the chicken thighs dry and season with salt on both sides. Place the chicken in the large bowl with the spices. Toss to coat. Add the sliced onion, the lemon juice, and olive oil. Toss together to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight (or you can skip this step).
Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove chicken from the refrigerator while the oven heats. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil (or oil baking sheet). Spread chicken and onions in one layer on the pan.
Roast for 30-35 minutes (boneless) or 35-40 minutes (bone-in) minutes, internal temperature reaches 165°F, or until knife pierces thickest part of the thigh and juices run clear. Remove from oven.
Allow chicken to rest and cool for 10 minutes. Once chicken is cool enough to handle, pull chicken meat off bones and shred chicken. Reserve bones for stock.
Spread shredded chicken back into the pan and return to oven on top rack. Broil for a 2 or 3 minutes to get crispy edges (watching carefully)! Remove from oven.
For the Salad and Vinaigrette – 
Whisking all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add prepared salad ingredients, and toss to combine. Add feta and mint to the top and gently toss.
For the Tzatziki –
