Shish Tawook (Grilled Chicken) Recipe

Shish Tawook (Grilled Chicken)

“Shish” means skewer in Turkish and it has been incorporated in the Lebanese language. “Tawook” means chicken and other types of poultry in Turkish, and it has also been integrated in the Lebanese language. It can be found in take away shops as a sandwich, along with french fries, pickles and garlic dip (chicken’s best friend). Or, in a platter in the restaurants. It can be bought raw and ready to go to the oven in all the supermarkets and butcheries, and in a wide variety of flavors: tomato, mayonnaise, garlic…etc. But usually I like to make my own mixture to soak the chicken.


500 grams chicken fillet
1 onion, finely chopped
4 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon chili paste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried coriander
1/2 teaspoon clove
1/2 teaspoon cardamon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 small can of mushrooms


1. Cut the chicken into 2 inches square

2. Mix all the remaining ingredients and place the chicken pieces in the marinade with the mushroom and keep in the fridge for about 2 hours

3. Preheat the oven to 180 C

4. Place the chicken pieces with mushroom on a wooden skewers and bake for about 25 minutes turning them once after half the cooking time
