Shish Taouk Recipe
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.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
- 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
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-24 hours, covered in the refrigerator.
Place chicken on the skewers (about 5 pieces on each). Grill for 15 minutes or until done. Remember to turn skewers during cooking.
Serve shish taouk with a bed of rice, bread, and a salad. Enjoy!
