Chicken strips in Shish Tawook spice


One of the greatest things about Australia is the food. It is like the United Nations here!  The food is as vast and diverse as the many cultures that have made Australia their second home.  And its great to discover little things such as a spice that speaks a certain culture.   This was through a taste test kiosk at the local shops – chicken strips marinated with Sami’s Kitchen Shish Tawook Spice and grilled on a pan.  It tasted great at that tasting table, and it smelled and tasted the same at home.  The house smelled so good.   I could almost imagine how the neighbours felt.  I’m pretty sure they could smell it for miles! 

We road tested this at home, pan fried using a shallow skillet/fry pan and used these ingredients:
500-750g chicken breast, cut into strips
3 cloves garlic, finely diced
2 tbsp Sami's Kitchen Shish Tawook spice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juice

Combine all the ingredients and let it sit/ marinade for 30 minutes.  Heat pan and cook chicken strips until done (about 5-6 minutes).  You can choose to cook the strips one by one, or in one go (all the chicken in the pan at the same time), but you’ll be squishing the pieces and could possibly stick together.

Option – use barbeque sticks and skewer the chicken and use a grilled pan and cook stove top, or the oven grill, or the barbeque grill in your backyard.  I seriously feel this is also great for barbeque lamb skewers.  The spice actually tasted just like our neighbour prepared in one of those dinners we had at their place.  Really good spice.

If you can’t find Sami’s Kitchen spice, this shish tawook is actually just a combination of the following:  ground garlic, paprika, thyme, nutmeg, pimiento, cinnamon.  Or you can buy Sami’s Kitchen products online.

PS – This is not a paid endorsement.  (Nothing ever is on this site)  This is something we bought, tried, cooked, ate at home, and liked it so much, we want friends and family to know.
