Shish Tawook

Shish tawook is delicious famous kabob that many of you probably already know about. Most people are a bit taken back when it comes to making kabobs without a grill but cooking under the broiler is a great alternative for cold weather or those who do not have one. The longer your able to marinate the chicken the better it will taste. Serve a yogurt-garlic sauce on the side for a bona fide taste.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Eid. My family and I really enjoyed ours. I made a large meal on the first day of Eid and I also made all Thanksgiving recipes, it was so good. The second day we just relaxed and did nothing. That was so nice and the third day we spent having fun with my brother and sister in laws. I really hope you all had a nice one and for the non-Muslims I hope that you had a great Thanksgiving with good family, friends and of course food.

2 pounds chicken breast, cubed
1 red pepper, cubed
1 green pepper, cubed

  • Love sheesh tawuk! I could eat it daily with a lot of toom (garlic sauce) but then nobody would talk to me!

  • we absolutely love this and I can’t wait to make it! I always wondered what gave the shish tawook that distinctive taste….guess it is the mayo- mustard in the marinade

  • Thanks for this recipe. I was wondering what is the method for getting a grilled flavor in the oven. I have seen it somewhere but now can’t find it. It is using coal or charcoal in a piece of foil I think. Can you help?

  • mmm looks delicioush mashaAllah

    I had a question though, where did the pita posts go?

  • Neverever thats kind of crazy that you noticed that because I accidentally erased the same day that you asked. I was like well maybe no one will notice, lol.

    Beruit I know what you mean sometimes when I eat sharwarma I just have to go for it, its so good.

    Aqua you will love this so much even my toddler loves it.

    Anwar you must have saw my video I have posted on here on how to smoke here is the link:

  • btw sweetie is ME Noor everyone. I just wanted to change it from my name so do not get confused :)

  • Lol yeah, I had looked up the recipe the day before and it was there. Then the next day I was going to try to make it and it was gone :-P

    I wanted to try a pita recipe with the milk powder to see how it was different. Usually if I want a softer dough I will make it with part milk instead of all water, but I thought the milk powder might pack a more powerful punch.

  • These sounds so good! I know my family would love these shish tawook.

    It is kabob/skewer week at Get Grillin’. Family Fresh Cooking & I would love it if you linked up this recipe & up to 2 other kabob recipes you may have.

  • I made this a few nights ago and my kids loved it! That says a lot, lol! Thanks!

  • This looks so good and I can’t wait to try it!!

    The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of fresh cream, what kind of cream exactly??

  • Dear Noor….just saw this website and went crazy over it. Wanna try almost all the recipes. In this recipe did you use mustard seeds or mustard sauce (bottled yellow paste).
    Thanks & God Bless
