Shish Tawook

A common Arabian barbecue item, which has succulent chicken pieces marinated and grilled to perfection. Perfect for some light munching during the evenings.

Ingredients

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup plain yogurt

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons tomato paste

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 2 inch pieces

2 onions, cut into large chunks

1 large green bell pepper, cut into large chunks

1 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

 

Instructions

 

  1. Whisk together the lemon juice, vegetable oil, plain yogurt, garlic, tomato paste, salt, oregano, pepper, allspice, cinnamon, and cardamom in a large bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat. Transfer the chicken mixture into a large plastic bag; refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Thread the chicken, onions, and pepper onto metal skewers. Cook on preheated grill until the chicken is golden and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes each side. Sprinkle the parsley over the skewers.
