Chicken on rice in Mississauga is the ultimate comfort food that pairs perfectly with Netflix and movie marathons.

There’s something about the combination of the fluffy rice, marinated chicken and signature garlic, tahini and hot sauce that makes each bite better than the last.

We’ve rounded up the top five places to get chicken on rice in Mississauga.

5) Osmow’s

Osmow’s is well known for what it calls “chicken on the rocks” (in fact, it’s the resto that coined the term “chicken on the rocks”) and it never disappoints. After all, they have been in business since 2001. Fun fact: The owner, Sam Osmow, originally opened a sub shop in Streetsville which was underperforming due to the big-name sub-chains all around him. One day, Sam decided to cook himself a middle eastern lunch in the restaurant and he was asked “what smelt so good” by a regular customer. After asking Sam to try a bite of the dish, the customer ended up requesting it as a replacement order which inspired Sam to re-brand his restaurant and shortly after, it became a hit in Streetsville. They are known for their authentic, homemade sauces, fluffy rice and fresh chicken.

4) Lazeez Shawarma

Lazeez serves up a delicious chicken on rice with finely carved, marinated chicken right from the rotating spit, roasted to perfection and topped with the iconic garlic sauce, tahini and your choice of spice levels on a bed of fluffy rice. You have the option to customize your meal with toppings if you’re in the mood for an extra crunch.

3) Taza Xpress

This establishment is relatively new to the chicken on rice world. If you want a fresh spin on your meal, try their take on the popular dish. Their meat is marinated with a blend of spices and topped with mouth-watering sauces and hot, delicious rice.

2) Original Shawarma

This resto serves up a signature chicken on rice with a medley of sauces which will give you an authentic Mediterranean experience. Their portion size is good, and they are quite generous with their meat servings. They use the freshest ingredients that are sure to satisfy every tastebud. This dish contains the perfect combination of stunning flavours and meats grilled to perfection.

1) Lezzet Shawarma Falafel House

This resto has a more unique approach to the classic chicken on rice dish. This family-owned business has been open since 2007 and they serve their customers with high-quality, home-style cooking. There are always line ups and you can guarantee that each meal is made fresh to order. Referred to as the Ali J’s, the plate is filled with a generous amount of rice, chicken and drizzled with a special house sauce that will keep you coming back for more. We think it is the most comforting take on this comfort meal.
