I was craving the chicken from my favorite Lebanese restaurant (which happens to be 1,200 miles from where I live now) so I went on a hunt for a similar recipe. This is the closest I could find. It's delicious with homemade garlic sauce. Enjoy!

  • 6 chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range
  • 3 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/4 c. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 1 lemon, fresh, organic
  • 1 tbs. paprika, organic
  • 6 oz. tomato paste, organic
  • 2 tbs. lemon zest, from fresh, organic lemons
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 2 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic

  1. Cut chicken breasts into pieces for skewers.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients together to make a marinade.
  3. Add chicken to marinade, mix well and refrigerate in a non-reactive container from 2-8 hours.
  4. Thread chicken on skewers and grill or cook under a broiler.
