Piccadilly Almond Chicken

Since I can remember my aunt would take me to the Piccadilly at the Fort 
Henry Mall in Kingsport, Tn. One of my favorite dish to order was their 
Almond Chicken. It had kind of a green look to it & it was served with 
crunch noodles. I loved it. I moved away for awhile then moved back. It was 
one thing I had missed. I tried to go several times but it wasn't on the 
menu or sold out before I got there. Then they retired it all together after 
months of me trying to get it. I was devastated! They didn't even have the 
recipe any more. I have searched for it over the years without any luck. I 
have had some people tell me it was made with Rice A Roni but didn't know 
the recipe. Please help!!!! I would be forever grateful.


Hello Marquita,

I failed to find any mention of this at all. I'll post it on the site in case a reader can help.

Hello Phaed

I hope you can find this recipe, back in the 70's and 80's there was a place in Lafayette Indiana on main st called Puritan coney island 
and they sold the best coney dogs ever .I believe the owners were greek but they wouldnít give out recipe for there coney sauce,it was 
different from other sauces because I donít think there was any hamburger in it.    
thank you zachary

Hello Zachary,

Iíve been looking for this one since 2010. I searched again today, but still no success.


Dugan's Bakery Tarts

I see you have a couple other recipes from Dugan's, but this is a real challenge as far as I can tell. (Meaning I have had no luck at all.) 
Back in the Fifties when I was a kid they made these little fruit tarts (blueberry and cherry if I recall correctly) and the crust had an 
almond flavor. Despite the fact I had relatives who worked there- which is why I got to eat so many- no one has been able to help with the 
recipe. Hope people appreciate what a public service you are doing!    

Hi Fred,

Wish I could say I found the tart recipe, but I had no success. I drew a blank again today. The only Duganís recipes that Iíve ever been able to find are the four on this site that were printed in the New York Times:
