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 two of my kids can’t have milk and love chicken, so I make this as simple as possible with no dairy. I made this for my mom’s birthday dinner last week.


6 chicken breasts, cut into chunks


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


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.
