So July 4th is only a few days away and it’s time to plan your menu. Now, I’m all for hamburgers and hotdogs, they’re a menu must, but it’s also nice to offer an alternative. How about chicken skewers (shish tawook)!?!?! Â The recipe and marinade is simple and you can find it on my site under shish tawook.


And I discovered something this last time that I made this recipe, I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs…WOW what a difference! The meat was super juicy and flavorful, it’s a great alternative to breast meat, which can sometimes be tricky for some people to cook it without overcooking it. Â Using thigh meat is pretty much fool proof because your meat is sure to be moist!


Another great tip when doing any type of skewer is to put in foil when you take it off the grill, that way it will stay moist and not dry out. Â You’re sure to impress with this recipe, and best of all you and marinade it the day before and it will be even more flavorful! Â Happy FOURTH!!!!
