7/366 | WHAATTTT?!?!?!?! Halal guys have their own shopping bags?!?!?! hahahahha If anyone ever visit New York City.. YOU HAVE TO STOP BY 53rd and 6th FOR SOME HALAL!! with white sauce =D

Every New Yorker knows that some of the best, most affordable food in the City comes from street carts. Not the pretzel, hot dog, and nut carts you find in tourist areas, but the corner Halal carts and breakfast carts that are around all transit hubs in the City.

Our friends at Serious Eats recently reverse engineered the famous “Chicken Over Rice” recipe from the Halal Guys so you can (at least try to) make this amazing dish at home!

Marinated in oregano, lemon, and coriander, chicken thighs are browned, chopped into chunks and served over a pile turmeric-yellow rice. Of course, it wouldn’t be halal-cart style without the ubiquitous (and none too fancy) salad of iceberg and tomatoes, and that mysterious sweet-sour-tangy white sauce that just has to be ladled all over the chicken and rice for true street-style authenticity.

Check out the recipe page to learn how to make it for yourself!
