FAST FOOD NEWS: Panda Express Sichuan Hot Chicken

Panda Express Sichuan Hot Chicken Test

After everyone and their aunties came out with chicken strips over the past two years, Panda Express is testing its own.

The chain is calling it Sichuan Hot Chicken and it features large, crispy strips of all-white meat chicken tossed in a spicy, Sichuan-inspired sauce. It’s also available Extra Spicy. The photo above was sent in by reader RaveGyrl, who took it at the Panda Express location in Calumet City, IL. She also tried it and shared her thoughts:

Yes, I tried it and it was amazing. They were like chicken tenders kind of like the Honey Sesame Chicken. The batter was still crunchy even with the sauce on it. It was really spicy and the heat stayed with me for a while. This is one of the first dishes I had at Panda Express where there wasn’t a sweet element to it. I would definitely get this again.
