Lebanese Style Shish Tawouk Chicken Kebab

Prep Time:

Cook Time:




2 lbs of skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes/Kabab chunks

1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice

6 table spoons of olive oil

½ to 1 teaspoon of tomato paste

Jacoub’s Shish Tawouk


1. Mix all ingredients well together while rubbing the chicken

Place in a container, cover, and let rest/marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours

Skewer the chicken right before grilling

Grill on medium heat for 12-18 minutes maximum

As soon as you remove them from the grill, place them in a big warm pot, replace the lid tightly, and let rest for 8-10 minutes - this helps the chicken become more moist (this step is optional)

Pro Tip

Always be sure to check that the chicken is cooked through and not pink, before serving.
