EXCELLENT! I just made this for dinner tonight and my husband & I were amazed. We used to order shish tawook all the time at a Lebanese restaurant in our old neighborhood. Now that we've moved, we haven't found a place that serves this so I've experimented with several other recipes and they were all disappointing. But this one is JUST RIGHT!!! Very authentic tasting. I modified it slightly to suit our (spicy) tastes by adding more oregano, a little dried mint, turmeric, and a couple dashes of cayenne pepper.
Although this recipe had fewer reviews than the other shish tawook chicken recipe in allrecipes, i chose to try out this recipe as the ingredts in this recipe appeared more authentic. Im so glad tht i made the right choice - this shish tawook chicken was delicious! It was moist and full of flavour! I added a few more cloves of garlic, reduced the cinnamon to a pinch and added a few dashes or turmeric powder, cayenne pepper and paprika. My family had this for dinner with pita bread ( recipe from allrecipes ) and the dipping sauce ( from the other shish tawook recipe in allrecipes ) This recipe is a keeper!!
This is really good! I wasn't sure the weight of the chicken I was using. I did use 3 really large chicken breasts and got 7 sticks. Cardamom is not easy to find and it is expensive so I found on-line that a subtitute is equal parts of cinnamon and nutmeg and used that. I also do not care for black pepper so I did not add it. For the onions I went with red onions as it didn't specify. I was busy all day and they marinated a total of 10 hours. Normally over marinating chicken can cause a bitter taste but it didn't at all. I don't have access to a grill so I broiled them in the house. I set the rack two down from the top and set the broiler to high. I lined a pan with tall sides with foil and broiled half of them at a time. For my oven it was 8 minutes then I flipped it for 5 minutes then one more flip for 2 minutes. Delicious!
This was wonderful delicious and very tender/moist. I did not have the allspice so that was omitted. This recipe is SO MUCH better than another from this site which claims to be authentic yet uses katchup and mustard. Thanks!
This was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I both really love shish tawook chicken and it was great to find a good authentic recipe. I left out the tomato paste but it still tasted just like our favorite middle eastern restaurant. It's especially good if you use the Thick-Style Lebanese Garlic Sauce (see recipe on this site) with it and wrap the chicken in a warm pita!
Delicious! I make this at least once a week. I use butterflied chicken breast and grill it as is (I'm too lazy for skewers). Not only is it easy but you can keep it in the marinade if your dinner plans change and the flavor gets better! Hubby and I eat it with rice and with hummus.
This was average. I would not make this recipe again as writtten. I was surprised that it was so bland; I've never found that to be true of Middle Eastern food. I would increase the salt and add cayenne for spice.
Absolutely delicious. We ate it with brown rice and spinach and I cooked it under the broiler. It would probably be even better outside on the grill as the recipe states. For lunch the next day we ate the leftovers in pitas with homemade hummus. Yum!!
