Shish Taouk Lebanese Chicken

This is a Lebanese favorite served in many variations. Throw caution to the wind and try substituting shrimp or lamb.


Lemon juice
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper

Garnish with:

Chopped fresh parsley
Red onion – thin sliced
Lemon wedges


Cut chicken into one-inch pieces. Marinade in olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper for at least one hour. Three hours is ideal. Turn halfway through.

Thread chicken onto skewers and cook over charcoal. Brush to coat with the remaining marinade.

Serve over rice with chopped parsley, lemon wedges and red onion.

Moroccan Marinade Version:

Extra-virgin olive oil
Chili pepper

Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro leaves.
