"Very tasty! We cook and eat lebanese food pretty often, so we were excited to try this recipe for kebabs. We made sirloin and chicken kebabs and they were a hit. We served them with rice (a simple Lebanese recipe from a grandmother), grilled veggies, pita and tzatziki (recipe #55337), holding the garlic everywhere due to allergies in the crowd. Still delicious."
"I made this tonight and it was amazing. I was very wary of using cinnamon as I hate it, but you can't taste it at all. The chicken was so moist and juicy and it tasted fantastic!!! I served it in pittas with salad, garlic mayo and lemon wedges."
"Very good and simple recipe. Chicken was super moist."
"Very good - would make it again. Thanks for posting!"
"Ok-I admit it. I was skeptic when I read cinnamon too. But I threw all the ingredients together (with extra garlic, of course). Then i cooked it in a pan. My brother had it in a pita with cucumbers and tomatoes. And I ate mine on a bed of rice and topped with carmelized onions. SOOOOOO delicious! This is definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!"
"super good ... moist .. tasty and eazy to make ... i had this with vegetable and it was beautifull ...i put this in a pita with garlic sauce the day after and it was delicious ... thanks alot fortha good recipe"
"Awesome! We liked it very much. Easy to make and it tasted great. We made it the day after again (!) and served it with Tabouli. We were looking for another marinade than our usual one and this dish turned out to be a keeper!"
"5 stars from me too! The spices are different, but very good. The flavor reminds me of one of my favorite appetizer recipes. I threaded onions, bell peppers, and zucchini on the skewers too. I will make this one again. Thank you for sharing your recipe! "
"I wasn't too sure about the combination of spices either but tried it with thinly sliced strips of turkey instead of chicken. Results were fantastic! Thanks for the recipe."
"These are fantastic. We eat a lot of grilled chicken, so I'm always looking for a new homemade marinade. I was a bit leery about using cinnamon and allspice with chicken - but the taste is wonderful. I grilled them on skewers with red onions. Tomorrow's lunch is leftovers in a pita bread with hummus, onion and tomato. Thanks for posting this great recipe!"
"Perfection!!!! Served on romaine leaves and along with a Greek salad. I marinaded the meat all afternoon in the refrigerator, used metal skewers to broil the cubes in the oven for about 10-11 minutes. The chicken was incredibly tender and flavourful. Thanks for the good, clear directions too. "
"mmm delicious! loved the combination of flavours. I served them in Romane lettuce leaves which we wrapped aroung them and ate by hand, they were wonderfull. Grilled them on our indoor grill, we will make them again, thanks for sharing."
"This is a great recipe. I absolutely loved it. Thanks novembersong!!"
"Super 5 star recipe! I made this tonight to go with Greek Potatoes, and made a Tzatziki Sauce to go with the chicken, wonderful! I cooked it in the george foreman grill. The chicken got the nice grill marks that compliment this recipe, can't wait to get out the real grill for this recipe this summer!"
"wonderfull flavor and very moist. I marinaded chicken portions in the mixture, using the lime juice suggested, then grilled over the embers of a fire. I stabbed the thickest parts a few times to allow the marinade to penetrate more easilly. I would not change a thing and have added tomy 'tried and tested' file"
"I just made this past Saturday...I made it pretty much the same measurement except for a little less on cinnamon and more for garlic (2 garlic cloves per lb)...which I multiplied it by 6X as I used 6 lbs for a group of 6 big eaters...we had 3 skewers left.
We all LOVED the taste of it! It was AWESOME!! Next time, I will make it exactly as the recipe calls for but will still double garlic. Oh, I also added about 2 tbs of greek seasoning. Also served hummus, pita bread, tzatziki, grilled zucchini. We all put tzatziki on top of chicken kebab pieces into halved pita bread and ate it to our hearts' content. It was that delicious!! Thanks for this recipe and it's definitely a keeper!!"
"Don't be put off by the cinnamon -- these were flavorful and loved by the entire family, all 3 generations."
"Good but not more. I used extra fresh pressed garlic as well, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, freshly squeezed lemon juice plus the rest of the ingredients. I also added red bell pepper & red onion to the skewers. I did ours under broil. I`d use another recipe ext time."
