Shish Tawook Chicken & Garlic Sauce (1 Year/100 Recipes #1)

1 Year/100 Recipes. What’s this all about?

The first recipe I chose for the 1 Year/100 Recipes challenge was Shish Tawook Chicken and Garlic Sauce (made 6.30.11). When I pulled this recipe out of my Entrees folder and looked it over, one thing that caught my eye was the date printed at the bottom—12.14.06. I have had this recipe in my possession for almost 5 years and had never made it. That is exactly why I’m doing this challenge. If I’m never going to make it—or if it doesn’t taste good—why am I hanging on to these recipes for years and years?

Pretty sure from the recipe that there is nothing authentic about it but it was still really good. Good enough that both my husband and my 4 year old son really enjoyed it and agreed that it should be put in the “keep” pile.


I did alter it slightly from the original as I made it and that alteration is what I’m going to share with you today.

I served it with yellow rice and some fresh veggies. If you give it a try I’d love to hear what you thought of it.
