Shish Tawook Chicken Kabob



  • 2 lbs of skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • a small slice of lemon with the peel
  • 15 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 6 table spoons of plain yogurt
  • 6 table spoons of olive oil
  • 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of ground white pepper
  • ⅓ teaspoon of ground ginger spice
  • ½ teaspoon of ground thyme
  • ⅓ teaspoon of paprika
  • 1+ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon of tomato paste



Mix all ingredients well together while rubbing the chicken

Place in a container, cover, and let rest/marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours

Skewer the chicken right before grilling

Grill on medium heat for 12-18 minutes maximum

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 moister

Spread 1 teaspoon of our garlic paste along pita bread, add some salted cucumber pickles, French fries, grilled tomatoes, the grilled chicken shish tawook, roll as in a burrito and enjoy.
