Ingredients

Marinade/Sauce

  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt Chobani works best for this recipe
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice about 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2-2.5 pounds chicken breasts cut into large pieces for skewers

Sandwich Ingredients

  • 1 package white pita bread
  • 8 tablespoons garlic spread (also called "toum") about 2 tablespoons per sandwich
  • 4 bread and butter pickle spears thinly sliced - more to taste
  • 2 roma tomatoes sliced

Instructions

  • Cut chicken breasts into large 1 1/2" squares and place into a zip-top bag or medium baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and mix well. 
  • Add 1/2 of the marinade ingredients to the bag of chicken and move chicken around until well coated. Reserve the rest of the marinade to use as a sauce.
  • Marinade chicken for 1 hour or up to overnight. 
  • Turn on grill to medium high heat and allow to reach 400°F. Skewer the chicken onto metal or wood skewers (if using wood, be sure to soak in water ahead of time so they don't burn). Grill until cooked through, about 8-10 minutes, flipping once half-way through.
  • Serve wrapped in pita bread with toum garlic sauce, a generous helping of the Tawook sauce, and thinly sliced pickles and fresh tomato.

Notes

I like to use this chicken to make pita sandwiches, but you can also just serve alongside a salad or on a plate with hummus, olives, garlic sauce and pita triangles.
