A copycat recipe of the famous NY Cart selling Chicken and Rice with it's delicious sauces!
FIrst Method: On a grill pan or a grill, 2-3 minutes on each side, don't overcook!
Second Method: Cook in a saucepan till tender. The when it's time to eat spread it out on a lightly greased foil lined baking sheet, drizzle with a little oil and broil for 2-3 minutes to char.
Add the turmeric and cumin and cook until fragrant, but not browned, about 1 minute.
Add the rice and stir to coat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the rice is lightly toasted, about 4 minutes.
Add the chicken broth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes check on it, if the rice has not cooked through then add a splash of water and continue to let it cook tightly covered.
Then add the remaining ingredients and blend to form a smooth paste. Taste – adjust seasoning if necessary, mine was pretty spicy so I used it in moderation.
Be careful when cooking your chicken, chicken breast can dry up if overcooked!
