Street Cart-Style Chicken & Rice for Two

Street Cart-Style Chicken & Rice for Two

Prep time: 2-4 minutes

Thank you to Chef Matt M for transporting us to the bustling streets of New York City tonight. Can’t you picture it? Bobbing and weaving down the avenue in a hurry when suddenly, the intoxicating smell of spices and meat cooking on the grill comes billowing out from a nearby cart and you realize, “DANG, I am hungry!”  

We hope that you are coming hungry, Fam, because our ode to NYC’s famous halal street cart fare is one full plate. You’ve got your tender, slow-roasted & marinated chicken thigh and earthy turmeric rice, plus alllllll the works for topping. Crunchy pickled veggies, mint-laced marinated tomatoes, and of course, red and white sauces. Harissa-based red to bring the heat, lemon zesty white to bring cooling balance. Sounds like a street cart chicken named desire if you ask us. We hope you enjoy!

In your bag

  • Marinated & slow-roasted chicken thigh
  • Turmeric rice
  • Garlic naan
  • Pickled veggie slaw
  • Marinated diced tomatoes
  • Street cart-style white sauce
  • Harissa hot sauce

At home

  • Microwave-safe bowl OR saute pan

The Chicken & Tumeric Rice

  1. We’re going microwave! Add the rice and chicken side by side on a microwave-safe dish.
  2. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 2-3 minutes until hot. 
  3. Alternatively: Heat your chicken on the stovetop. Heat a saute pan over medium with a drizzle of olive oil. Toss in your chicken and saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until it’s nice and hot.

The Garlic Naan

  1. Heat in the toaster or oven until hot and crisped to your liking. It only needs a few minutes!

Everything else

  1. Best served cold!

Top your chicken and rice with tomatoes and pickled veggies! Drizzle away with your sauces! (Maybe start light with the red one, though, it packs a punch.) Garlicky naan goes on the side for scooping up big bites with a little bit of everything.  

That’s it! #Dinnersolved, dinner served.
