Shish Tawook

Shish Tawook is a Middle Eastern low fat recipe for marinated chicken breast, which can be baked in the oven or skewered and barbequed. Sometimes they served it as appetizer or side dish. It taste great with pita bread but it can also be eaten with Arabian Rice. Usually, the dipping sauce was made of mayonnaise and yogurt mixture but I still prefer plain hot chili sauce, lol :). Sorry, I did not able to take a nice picture of it.

500 g skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tbsp. plain low-fat yogurt
2 tbsp. tomato ketchup
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. paprika
1/3 tsp. black pepper powder
1/4 tsp. curry paste/powder
1/4 tsp. corriander powder
1/3 tsp. salt

Dipping Sauce:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. In a medium bowl, stir together oil, yogurt and ketchup. Season with garlic powder, paprika, black pepper and curry powder. Stir in chicken pieces, coating all sides with marinade. Cover bowl, and refrigerate overnight.
2. To make dipping sauce, mix together mayonnaise, yogurt, garlic, and salt. Cover, and refrigerate.
3. Transfer the chicken pieces to a shallow baking dish and bake in a preheated 200 degree C oven for 30 minutes. Serve with Pita Bread and some vegetable salad.
