Chicken Shawarma Wrap

In San Francisco, I used to live a block away from an amazing Middle Eastern restaurant.

I'm a huge fan of Indo-Chinese food. Period. I love the spiciness of Schezwan sauce and a subtle hint of garlic flavored rice. I get both in this wonderful Triple Schezwan Fried Rice recipe. The name says 'triple' because it consists of 3 fundamental components, rice, noodles, and chicken gravy. You could take any one… Continue reading Chicken Triple Schezwan Fried Rice
