Found this blurb in a Jerry Berger column. I am sure that the Lotus Room is where they got it.
<If the Lotus Room on Brentwood Boulevard hadn’t existed, it would have to be invented. The late Howard Wong ran it with a steel grip and who could ever forget “Bobbie,” the server who dressed in Asian drag? Now, inquiring minds would like to have some of the Lotus Room recipes. Anyone out there have a few?
A friend of mine used to order that all the time. I think it was with a lemon sauce. I was looking for it since that previous thread mentioned it. I looked up the recipe and it seems to be more of a technique than a specific presentation. Chicken velvet is chicken minced or put through the food processor and some chicken broth added and egg whites used as a binder. It can be used in soup or deep fried. They do have a chicken velvet corn soup at Mandarin House but it seemed bland to me. I wonder if that sort of thing fell out of favor because the general population prefers pieces of white meat.
There is also "velveting"
