Jawaneh - Lebanese Grilled Chicken Wings

Jawaneh - Lebanese Grilled Chicken Wings

This is a famous dish in Middle Eastern cuisine and it originated from Lebanon. This Lebanese Chicken dish, is a part of regular mezze, and is very easy to prepare and equally fast it disappears from the plate. I have often felt tired supplying quick servings of more than one tray at one time... yes, that's what happens when I prepare it for my friends and family. I am sure you would also enjoy making it and the fun that follows.

  • Salt  to taste
