A Street Cart Named Desire

Halal Cart - Style Chicken & Rice

February 22nd, 2019

This week, we take on the NYC cult classic late night dish, The Halal Cart Style Chicken and Rice Plate. Inspired by the Serious Eats Website, we had a great time making this dish, eating it and talking about it on episode 041. We also talk about Lego Movie 2, Sex Education, Big Mouth & The Umbrella Academy. After a buzzfeed quiz kerfuffle, we abandon ship and talk about the Really, Really Weird, Ice Cream Flip Challenge.

We also get emails about our eggplant dish and creole food. Listen to episode #040 to be entertained in the kitchen, your commute or wherever you listen to podcasts!

Original Recipe

Links To Original Recipes


Instead of Cooking in Pan for first cook, try doing it on the grill (Especially if you sub out Chicken Breasts for Thigh Meat)

*Special Note: Below are replacement recipes for white sauce and a slight modification to the original recipe. Sara and I both opted for using chicken breast instead of chicken thighs. In addition, we found the sauce to be too sweet and slightly too much mayo-ee? After some good "internetting," we found some upgrades below. Check 'em out and choose the one that you feel most comfortable with.


  • After removing chicken from marinade, cut the chicken into ½ to ¼ inch chunks.
  • Clean grill and lightly oil grates with veg oil. Heat grill to high heat. Cook chicken approximately for 3-4 minutes per side (flipping once). Spread chicken out so that it gets nice and browned on all sides. Transfer chicken to cutting board.
