Shish Tawouk

Mom’s 81st birthday meal. All of her favorite dishes she ordered when she came to visit in Saudi!  The picture seen above is the meal I made for her in honor of her birthday!

This is an easy chicken dish that is often times grilled. I don’t do much grilling and I try to keep things easy. So, this is my recipe for Shish Tawouk which is basically spiced chicken pieces which are often put on a skewer, or a sandwich.  This dish traditionally has yogurt and tomato paste in the marinade but I have two kids who can’t have milk so I just keep it simple and dairy free! I made this for my mom’s birthday dinner last week.

Ingredients

6 chicken breasts, cut into chunks

Marinade

1/2 cup lemon juice

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. allspice

Salt to taste- 1 tsp.

1/2 cup olive oil

5 cloves chopped garlic

Directions

Mix the marinade ingredients so they are well combined, add the chunks of chicken.

Make sure the chicken is well coated.

Refrigerate. I let this marinate for several hours before cooking.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place chicken on baking dish and put in oven. Let this cook until very well done.

Shish Tawouk can be served as part of an Arabic meal, or in a sandwich or plain.

  32. Good Morning Llynz. I just figured out what I am so drawn to your recipes and trying them. It is because I can just about every time find recipes here that I have most of the ingredients for already on the kitchen shelves. That makes such a difference between..’Oh that sounds delicious’ and what I so often find myself saying to you.”I’m making that.” Making this dish today. Thank you.
