Almond chicken cooked midwest style?

Mary May 1, 2000 02:09 PM

I am a transplanted Detroiter now living in Pasadena. One of the culinary delights I miss most of all is almond chicken. In Detroit, almond chicken was battered and golden fried chicken breast strips atop a bed of rice and lettuce, smothered in a rich dark vegetable sauce. Here, it's nothing like that. The chicken is skinless and sauteed and comes with actual almond pieces. I've lived here for 6 years and enjoy it, but despair of ever finding a Chinese restaurant that cooks almond chicken the way I love it. Am I out of luck or is there any hope??

    Aha - the desire for inauthentic food cannot be stopped.

    I don't think I've had it like this, but maybe there are some compliant cooks who would make it this way.
