Subject: Recipe request "Chicken Supreme"
The Sahara Restaurant was an institution in Montgomery, Al. It opened in
1952 and closed about 10 years ago. They fed Governors and the common man
alike. One of their signature dishes was a chicken dish, Chicken Supreme.
The taste was unique to those of us that ate there for many years. Other
restaurants in Montgomery serve a copy cat, but none come close to the
original. A version of imperial chicken, a fried breast, with a cream sauce
(no mushrooms as I recall), and almonds slices. If you could find that
recipe with that unique taste, I would be grateful. It was my husband's
favorite restaurant so having the recipe would allow me to recreate that
dish for his birthday. He and the restaurant were "born" the same year.
Sorry, I had no success with this. I'll post this for reader input.
At least one person thinks that the chicken supreme at Charles Anthony's
Restaurant tastes just like Sahara's. See: Charles Anthony's Restaurant at the Pub
Subject: I was looking for Bill Knapps Tuna Salad recipe
Date: Monday, December 04, 2017 5:37 PM
I worked at Bill Knapp's from 1992 to 1999 as a manager when I left.
I do know the fried chicken breading was nothing more than flour, salt,
and pepper blended. We used a true "eggwash" of milk and eggs before
rolling the breading.
I looked at your not able to find these and I can say:
The chicken tortilla soup was purchased from a supplier and was not an
original BK recipe.
We put BK proprietary "scampi butter" on the Scallops and Scrod. It
was butter, garlic, parsley, rosemary and thyme.
The meatloaf, veggie lasagna, roasted (baked) chicken, baby back ribs,
were all purchased from a supplier and heated at the restaurants. The ribs
and chicken were from Tyson.
Everything else was made at the commissary with BK original recipes, We
used to have a shortcut recipe book at each restaurant so we could make
things on the fly if we ran out. I would kill for that book today.
Oh the cocktail sauce was literally ketchup and horseradish with a touch
of lemon juice blended together.
I would really like to find the tuna salad recipe. I still have not found
one that even comes close.
Thanks for the BK tips. I have not been able to find the Bill Knapp tuna salad recipe.

Have you run across Hough Bakery’s chocolate chip cookie recipe, or a reasonable facsimile?
I grew up in Euclid, OH and truly miss those cookies.
Thank you for your help.
Sorry, I’ve had no success locating Hough’s chocolate chip cookies recipe or even a “tastes-like” recipe for them.
