Shish Taouk - Chicken Kebobs

Shish taouk is chicken kebabs. This basic recipe includes the marinade and cooking instructions just for the chicken. You can add vegetables to the skewer if desired. I suggest onions, green peppers, and mushrooms.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 lbs cubed chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne


In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Allow chicken to marinate for 2-24 hours, covered in the refrigerator.

Place chicken on the skewers (about 5 pieces on each). Grill for 15 minutes or until done. Remember to turn skewers during cooking.

Serve shish taouk with a bed of rice, bread, and a salad. Enjoy!
