Being in the restaurant business for quite some time, we have observed that most food connoisseurs would agree that middle eastern dishes are extremely appetizing. That is the reason why middle eastern foods have one of the best cuisines in the world, which are rich in spices and herbs. If the dish includes chicken, then the taste becomes more heavenly! Isn’t it? 

The basic concept of Middle Eastern food ranges from Persian to Arabian, Turkish, and Israeli cuisines. They are some of the most popular cuisines worldwide because most of them are delicious.  

Each of these cuisines is almost the same as they apply the same kind of spices such as coriander, cumin, and other herbs. It has been observed that apart from lamb, chicken is the other most common meat that is consumed and served among locals.  

In this article, we’ve identified the top ten spicy Middle Eastern Chicken dishes that would surely spice up your menu. They’re as follows-  

Chicken Arabic Biriyani 

As a leading middle eastern chicken preparation, Arabic Biryani happens to be a Gulf Arabian chicken. It is usually a spiced rice dish that we blend with spices. Then we garnish it with fried onion and top it with yogurt garlic sauce.  

Although it isn’t traditional, it has some striking similarities with South Asian-style Biryani. The sole exception is that it isn’t spicy.  Despite being an Indian-inspired recipe, this particular dish is prepared using Middle Eastern spices and herbs. It is best to be served either with tomato daqoos sauce or yogurt garlic sauce. 

Middle Eastern Chicken Kafta 

Chicken Kafta is another middle eastern or Arabic chicken minced meat recipe adequately mixed with spices and herbs. It is best combined with yogurt sauce and pita bread. This extremely common dish in Middle Eastern Cuisine is exclusively found in places like Jordan, Lebanon, and Gulf Arab countries.  

Chicken Maqluba 

A traditional Palestinian and Jordanian spiced rice dish that is combined with potatoes, eggplant, fried cauliflower, and meat is Chicken Maqluba. It is ideal to be served with Yogurt and Arabic Salad. 

Shish Tawook Chicken Skewers 

Lebanese grilled chicken skewers or kabobs are known as Shish Tawook. The unique color and flavor of this dish derive from the yogurt as the spice marinade softens the chicken. 

Chicken Majboos 

You’ll feel surprised to know that Chicken Majboos is the national dish of Kuwait. In this preparation, we simmer the chicken in herbs and spices. Then we fry it in another pan. The basmati rice is cooked by utilizing the soup stock from herbs and spices. Traditionally, it is served with tomato garlic sauce, which is called Daqoos.   

Chicken Shawarma Wrap 

You will simply fall in love with the savory aromatic flavors in these easy-to-cook Chicken Shawarma Sandwiches. This is a kind of grilled chicken sandwich that will become your new favorite due to its flavor. It is also quite inexpensive and easily customizable to apply ingredients that you have on hand. 

Egyptian Chicken Molokhia 

Chicken Molokhia happens to be a unique chicken soup recipe that is blended with chicken meat & broth, green jute leaves, cardamom, lemon juice, and lots of garlic. Despite being an Egyptian recipe, this dish is commonly found in Jordan and Lebanon as well. However, they have their indigenous versions of molokhia, unlike what we serve. 

Musakhan Wraps (Palestinian Chicken Wraps) 

Musakhan Wraps, also known as Palestinian Chicken Wraps are more precisely Sumac-spiced chicken where onions are wrapped in thin flatbread and baked until they attain crispness and are golden. 


An extremely flavorsome Moroccan pie with crisp pastry is Pastilla. Though it is traditionally prepared with rabbits, chicken has gained more popularity these days. It is amazing for leftovers. 

Moroccan Chicken Tagine Recipe 

This is more of a chicken tagine with dried fruits and nuts. The chicken is spiced and slowly prepared for a juicy finish.
