    How to make Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken

    • In a large zip lock bag, add the ingredients – lemon juice, yogurt, vinegar, ginger, paprika, tomato paste, garlic, olive oil, pepper, oregano, and salt.
    • Seal the bag and mix well until all the ingredients are well combined.
    • Add chicken to the zip lock bag.
    • Place the zip lock bag in a glass bowl and in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours.
    • Half an hour before preparing the shish tawook marinated chicken, dip the wooden skewers in water. (skip this step if using iron skewers)
    • Remove the marinated chicken from the refrigerator and insert the chicken cubes onto skewers.
    • Prepare the grill, and cook the chicken skewers for 12-16 minutes, or until they are golden, moist and cooked through. Turn the skewers frequently to cook on all sides. (chicken skewers can also be broiled or cooked on a grill pan on the stove)
    • As soon as the chicken is grilled, remove from the skewers and transfer into a lidded pot to keep warm.
    • Serve with rice or pita breads.


    • The word shish came from old Turkish, which translates into skewer.
    • Tawook is also a word from the old Turkish language which means chicken.
