One Pan Lebanese Shish Tawook Chicken Recipe

Hands down, Lebanese Shish Tawook Chicken is probably one of my go-to weeknight dinner recipes. Traditionally made in a frying pan, I decided to make this 5-ingredient recipe even easier by baking it in the oven on a sheet pan.

Flavored with plenty of bright lemon juice, fresh garlic, and extra virgin olive oil, the chicken bakes in the oven while my hands are free to do other important things.

You know, like toss a quick Syrian salad or whip up a side of Lebanese cucumber yogurt sauce (laban.) Shish tawook chicken is also delicious served over a hot bed of Lebanese Rice Pilaf.

  1. Are you joking? This is not Lebanese shish tawook. This is unseasoned, baked chicken. Shish tawook is marinated in yogurt, lemon juice, and spices for many hours or even overnight. This just has lemon juice, a small amount of garlic, salt, and pepper. Any Lebanese person reading this has got to be so offended. I can’t even believe this is real.

    1. Hi Malini! I’m actually Lebanese, and have an authentic Shish Tawook recipe on my site as well if you’d like to try that! I explain in this post that I altered the traditional recipe to be made on a sheet pan so that it’s quick and easier for people who don’t have as much time.

      1. Can you do a yogurt marinade for an oven recipe? I just don’t own a grill, and I’m guessing pan frying on my electric stovetop wouldn’t be good substitute.

  2. Made a batch using chicken thighs. Super easy. Had some with my cauli fried rice for dinner tonight. Will have some with my salad tomorrow.
