CopyCat Chicken Hanover Platter
When I first moved to Houston a few years ago, I met Ben out for lunch one day while he was working and he took me to a restaurant called Island Grill. There were so many good options on the menu but he insisted that I order the Hanover Platter. The platter consisted of a large dish filled with hummus, tabbouleh, avocado, chicken, mushrooms, and onions with the most heavenly garlic sauce and a side of warm pita. I fell in love with this dish and have yet to try anything else on the menu! When we moved back to Dallas last November one of the main things I missed was the Hanover Platter. Since I don’t go to Houston very often I had to come up with a way to recreate it! After a few tries, I think I finally got pretty close to the recipe. It will never be the exact same as going to Island Grill, but I am pretty pleased with what I recreated! This dish has a lot of components so if you are someone that likes to hand make everything- this dish could take you some time. I have tried it both ways, using homemade tabbouleh, sauce, and hummus and using them pre-made from store. To me, there isn’t much of a difference but I will leave that decision up to you! This recipe could take 30 minutes if you cut a few corners (which isn’t a bad thing) or take over an hour! I love this recipe because it has so many different flavor profiles going on, but everything pairs together so nicely- the warm pita, the spicy chili sauce, the pungent garlic sauce, the freshness from the tabbouleh- I am getting hungry just writing this! Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy this meal as much as Ben and I do. And if you are ever in Houston, make a stop at Island Grill and order the Hanover Platter- y0u will not be disappointed!
