Shish Taouk-Chicken Kebobs Recipe

Shish Taouk, also known as Chicken Kebobs, is a popular Middle Eastern dish made with marinated chicken pieces grilled to perfection. The chicken is marinated in a flavorful blend of yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, and spices, which tenderizes the meat and infuses it with delicious flavors. The kebobs are then skewered and grilled until they are juicy and charred on the outside. Shish Taouk is often served with pita bread, garlic sauce, and a side of salad or rice.

  • For extra flavor, you can add chopped onions, bell peppers, or cherry tomatoes between the chicken pieces on the skewers.
  • If you don't have a grill, you can also cook the chicken kebobs in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for about 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Storage and Serving

  • Leftover Shish Taouk can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
