Huaiyang style clay pot chicken with chestnuts

So I used to love th Clay pot chicken with chestnuts 砂鍋栗子雞 at late Giang Nan (得月樓) restaurant in Monterey Park. It had a sort of sweet soy based sauce. Delicious. Chicken was on the bone but it’s not necessary for me.

Does anyone have an idea of a place that makes this now? I looked at a few places but it’s not on their menu

i recall shanghai restaurant in focus plaza offering a chicken/chestnut dish i really liked. 栗子鸡煲 ( chestnut chicken ) it may not be the dish you’re looking for, but my comments on that dish (from about six years ago) are as follows:

“chicken with chestnuts. this might be one of my favorite dishes ever. the chestnuts under pressure dissolve into a creamy chestnut-ty essence that seemingly lubricates its way into your stomach. just amazing.”

i’d forgotten about this dish until your post. thanks for the reminder.

Yes. that would be the dish. Shanghai restos in general have Huaiyang food, and Zhejiang/hangzhou/ningbo/shaoxing dishes, and a few idiosyncratic Shanghai dishes.Thanks.
