Shish taouk is chicken kebabs. This basic recipe includes the marinade and cooking instructions just for the chicken. You can add vegetables to the skewer if desired. I suggest onions, green peppers, and mushrooms.

What You'll Need

  • 2 lbs cubed chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne

How to Make It

  1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients.
  2. Allow chicken to marinate for 2 to 24 hours, covered in the refrigerator.
  3. Place chicken on the skewers (about 5 pieces on each).
  4. Grill for 15 minutes or until done. Remember to turn skewers during cooking.
  5. Serve shish taouk with a bed of rice, bread, and a salad. Enjoy!
