Yes, you saw that correctly — that is indeed pastrami wrapped around a chicken breast that is then breaded and deep fried.
And it is just great.
Whereas chicken can often be mediocre — perhaps a brand of bland, dry, or stringy — the smoky meat really does add moisture and depth to this simple stir-fry dish.
Be advised: it’s too damned pricey ($18.95. Shit!)
So, we suggest that you break it into a few meals or plan on eating New York City’s
cheap eats for the next few days (both of which are our plans).
