Cubed chicken is marinated in lemon juice, yoghurt, garlic and a few herbs and spices, then barbecued. The yoghurt and lemon juice acts as a tenderiser, so you'll always get tender and moist chicken kebabs.

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. - 19 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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!! - 18 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 23 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
