LEBANESE SHISH TAWOOK


I'm gonna run this fast, got nothing much to explain..ha..ha this Lebanese Shish Tawook is actually grilled chicken using skewer famous among the middle eastern. I used to have it in the ARAB restaurant but some how am curious and wish to give a try. I made one batch of it serve with rice and the Arab's flat bread. What' important with this dish is the marinate process and the marinate ingredients. Its good to marinate it overnight, overall its yummy and satisfying.

Shish Tawook

  • 2 lbs of skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes/Kabab chunks
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • a small slice of lemon with the peel (optional, don't put too much)
  • 15 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 6 table spoons of plain yogurt (Greek yogurt)
  • 6 table spoons of olive oil
  • 2 table spoons of red vinegar (apple cider vinegar)
  • 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of ground white pepper
  • ⅓ teaspoon of ground ginger spice
  • ½ teaspoon of ground thyme, or ground oregano
  • ⅓ teaspoon of paprika
  • 1+ teaspoon of salt (or to taste)
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon of tomato paste
  • Lebanese Garlic Paste (see our recipe here) to be served with shish tawook

Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients well together while rubbing the chicken
  2. Place in a container, cover, and let rest/marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours
  3. Skewer the chicken right before grilling
  4. Grill on medium heat for 12-18 minutes maximum
  5. As soon as you remove them from the grill, place them in a big warm pot, replace the lid tightly, and let rest for 8-10 minutes - this helps the chicken become more moist (this step is optional)
  6. Spread 1 teaspoon of our garlic paste along the diameter of a pita bread, add some salted cucumber pickles, french fries, grilled tomatoes or peppers (optional), the grilled chicken shish tawook, roll as in a burrito and enjoy. You could also toast the sandwich roll through a panini grill for 2-3 minutes.
