Serious Eats’ Halal Cart-Style Chicken and Rice With White Sauce 

Manhattan is home to several smells, but perhaps the foremost delicious is that the chicken-y, savory scent that emanates from the city’s countless halal carts. Serving lunch to late-night, these carts serve a container filled with chicken rice that tastes like nothing else, crave-worthy and singular.

To taste this particular chicken and rice you’ll get yourself to Midtown or do this recipe with us, a spot-on rendition of the road food classic. 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 ever present (and none too fancy) salad of iceberg and tomatoes, which mysterious sweet-sour-tangy bechamel sauce that just has got to be ladled everywhere the chicken and rice for true street-style authenticity.
