Do fast food chains know the U.S. is in the middle of the hottest months of the year? I’m not sure they do because they keep releasing products that can burn out mouths. So far it’s been Sonic Reaper pepper slushes, Taco Bell Reaper pepper sauce coated fries, and now Panda Express’ Sichuan Hot Chicken.
The menu item features breaded all-white meat chicken tossed in a spicy, Sichuan-inspired sauce and topped with a sprinkle of a spice blend. The entree first made its appearance as a test item late last year.
Sichuan Hot Chicken is available for a limited time at participating locations.
A serving has 400 calories 26 grams of fat, 4.5 grams of saturated fat, 45 milligrams of cholesterol, 910 milligrams of sodium, 22 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of sugar, and 19 grams of protein.
