Chicken Tawook Skewers

What is it with food on a skewer that makes it so appealing? Is it more fun to eat? Is it the individual portions? Ease of handling? Or, does it remind us of our childhood love for Popsicles and lollipops? I don’t know... All I know is that this is one of my favorite recipes for chicken and I do have many.

The recipe I am sharing with you today is the result of so much trial and error. You see, shish tawook is a famous Middle Eastern dish that you will find on the menu of each and every restaurant that serves Mediterranean food and I am nothing if I don’t love a challenge. All I have to say about this recipe is... We don’t order shish tawook when we eat out any more.
