  1. Those look awesome. I was looking over the recipe and I have everything I need to make them. Thanks for the fab dinner idea!

    • That’s one of my favorite things about this recipe is I pretty much always have the ingredients on hand. That and there is very little hands on prep. I can put the chicken in the marinade in the morning and stick it in the fridge until about 30 minutes before I want to eat,

  2. That looks delicious! And I am always looking for recipes that I prep, but that my husband grills! Thanks for sharing with the SRC.

  15. Hi

    We specialise in traditional Lebanese cuisine & so when I see Shish Tawook that uses soy sauce, it’s really not doing any justice to Lebanese cuisine which is simple & clean.

    No offense meant, I eat Asian dishes & cook them for my family, but would never advocate using this item on our menu!
