Shish Tawook Chicken Kebab

Kofta Kebab Charcoal grilled Ground Beef

Shish Tawook in sandwich or plate

Shish tawook or what called chicken kebab, originally served on skewer inside a pita bread or in a plate with white or saffron rice on the side. Therefore was t great success for many restaurant business to be on top of the menu, easy to make healthy with low fat and high routein, all made it great benefit for models and people on low calories diet!!

Sish Tawook is made of breast white chicken meat only! Unlike the chicken Shwerma which made of all type of chicken preferably the dark meat " leg and thigh". in a sandwich normally served with humus and tomato in side pita bread, some like to add grilled green pepper and onion as well. It's cooked on the charcoal or flat grill, each has a slightly a different taste, however my favorite way is the charcoal style! Hope you try this recipe soon... sure you will enjoy it!!


  • 2 lb chicken breast
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup win vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1teaspoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  • salt and pepper


Cut the chicken breast into cubes 1 - 1 1/2 in, place the chicken in large container for marination.

Add garlic, olive oil, vinegar, ketchup, oregano and salt and pepper salt and pepper to my taste was little less then teaspoon. Cover the container and let set at the fridge for 4 - 6 hrs, so the spices will develop the flavor.

Arrange the chicken in skewers and ready to cook. I use a charcoal grill, turning the skewers 8 - 12 min each side, however you may use the broil function in the oven, or use a heave iron skillet, each results are different, but yo may agree all good taste you may serve it on top of salad, white rice or Hummus.. enjoy
