الوصفه بالعربي

Simple, juicy, and full of flavour… This Shish Tawook recipe will become a staple in your household! It is ideal for everyday, and very impressive in gatherings. All you need to do is remember to marinate the chicken for at least 2 hours before cooking. The rest is easier than you think.


  • 1.25 kg chicken thighs (deboned) - أوراك الدجاج
  • 2 large onions (chopped into medium slices) - بصل
  • 2 medium tomatoes (grated) - طماطم
  • 3 tablespoon yoghurt - زبادي
  • 4 tablespoon vinegar - خل
  • 2 teaspoon thyme - زعتر
  • 2 teaspoon sumac - سماق
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - بودرة ثوم
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste) - ملح
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper - فلفل أسود

Step by step

  1. Place the chicken in a bowl and add all the marinade ingredients (except the oil). Toss together and make sure all the pieces are well-coated.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.
  3. To cook the chicken, brush a large frying pan or griddle with oil. Arrange the chicken and the onion pieces on the hot pan. Discard any extra marinade.
  4. Grill on both sides on high- medium heat until nicely coloured and cooked through.
