Hello. I sense your desperation! I would love to help you track down your recipe but first you need to tell me a few things: What do you taste in this brown sauce? Is it sweet? a little sour? are there veggies involved? Is the chicken coated? I have a suspicion that the recipe you are looking for may be similar to a General Tso's Chicken sauce base, but with almonds thrown in. Get back to me and I'll see if I can delve a bit deeper for you.

Don't know what other recipes you saw, but here's one

more: Bone 1 chicken breast and cut into 1/2"cubes. Mix

with 1 egg white, 2 t. cornstarch and 1/2 t. salt. Set

aside.

Mix 2 T. hoisin sauce, 2 t. light soy sauce, 2 t.

sherry, 2 scallions sliced and a dash of pepper. Set aside

the brown sauce.

Heat 3 T vegetable oil until smoking, lower heat and

add 1/2 C. blanched almonds. Stir-fry for 30 seconds until

edges turn golden. Do not brown. Remove almonds and drain

on paper towel.

While pan is still hot, add chicken mixture to oil and

stir-fry over high heat briefly. Turn heat down to medium

heat; cook 2 minutes. Add brown sauce and cook for 2-3

minutes. Lower heat more if sauce starts to dry up.

Transfer to serving dish and garnish with almonds.

I was in search of this very recipe I did find the exact chicken consistancy, crispyness it goes like this:

1 Box chinese bread crumbs-I found it at fry's grocery store

flour

egg

1/2 cup ground up almonds-fine

the bread crumbs remind you of potato flakes, add the almonds to the crumbs

dip 1/2 of a chicken breast in flour

then in egg then in bread crumbs, have 1/2 inch of oil in pan, fry until golden brown

My family gave this a 10- the chicken was excellent and crispy just like in the restaurants. I am now in search of the brown gravy your talking about to put on top.

Enjoy
