ABC almond boneless chicken Detroit style

Hello everyone, I'm originally from Detroit, recently moved here to Atlanta from Denver and am desperately trying to find an old school American chinese dish called almond boneless chicken(also referred to as ABC and war su gai) here in Atlanta. Anyone know where I can find this here? I see almond fried chicken listed on many menus, have tried it once in a restaurant near peachtree city, but while the preparation of the chicken was spot on the gravy/sauce that came with it was not. The gravy/sauce that I got was a creamy thick gravy almost peanut butter(kinda had a peanut type taste too)looking substance which is not what I would normally get back in Michigan. The gravy/sauce in Michigan is brown and translucent and not creamy in any way. It has a very subtle taste to it, not spicy or nutty or sweet,can't really describe it, other than it being amazing.

Is there any place here in Georgia that serves the dish like they do back in Detroit?

I used to order this dish once a week when I lived in Detroit, couldn't find it in Denver, am craving it terribly.

Thanks in advance.
