Rafakey Marinade

Dino loves the food from this street vendor in NYC – Rafiqi (northeast corner of 44th and 5th), so he made up a version of the marinade to make a similar dish at home. He’s been making it for a while now, and it’s awesome! This is the basic recipe…I’m pretty sure he changes it a little every time he makes it. Then he fries up the chicken with onions in the cast iron skillet, wraps it up in a pita (this time, freshly made by one of the members of our supper club Sunday morning!) and we have a delicious meal!
