Shish Tawook (Lebanese Marinated Chicken Skewers)
We get Lebanese carry-out a lot.
More than I care to admit.
We’re talking once a week, people. Usually on Sundays. But we’re working on cutting down on the carry-out to save money and be more conscientious about what we eat. Besides, now that cooking doesn’t make me want to lose my cookies, I actually enjoy being in the kitchen again.
I can’t even tell you how great that feels. And let’s be honest, most things you can get at a restaurant, you can make at home.
Moreover, they will probably taste better and be better for you.
These chicken skewers are so flavorful thanks to lemon, garlic and spices. Moist from soaking in marinade and yogurt, they definitely aren’t a dull, boring, chicken breast. We had these twice in one week. I’m addicted, Ben loves them and so does E! Serve them with rice, a green salad or on a pita with garlic sauce (link in recipe) and pickles. Or serve them atop the salad. Or serve them with hummus. Or just eat them straight off of the skewer. That’s what I do.
Verdict: LOVE this recipe.
Husband’s take: LOVES this recipe. Seriously. This one is a winner in our house.
Changes I would make: Eat more.
Difficulty: Pretty easy!
