    Shish Taouk is a traditional Middle Eastern marinated chicken dish; it is popular in turkey but can also be found in Syria and Lebanon. The cooking method differs from one country to another, but the basis is always the same.

     

    The key ingredient in this dish is the marinade; the yogurt and the freshly squeezed lemon juice add a great flavor to the chicken while also tenderizing it. To boost the deliciousness of this meal, you can serve it with rice bowls or with tortillas.

     

    Note that this recipe is very flexible. You can replace the yogurt with low-fat plain yogurt or plain Greek yogurt, which won’t change the flavor.
