    Panda Express
    To help spread the word about its newest dish, Panda Express will be hosting at activation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where convention-goers will have the chance to sample Sichuan Hot Chicken for free.

    Panda Express’ newest original recipe, Sichuan Hot Chicken, is a customizable hand-held entrée unlike any other dish the American Chinese kitchen has brought to fans before. During a culinary trip in Chengdu, China, Panda Chefs were inspired to popularize the unique tingling spice of Sichuan peppercorns in the form of one of America’s favorite dishes, Nashville hot chicken. The result? The snackable chicken strips are made up of extra crispy raised without antibiotics, all-white meat chicken breast, tossed in an addictive Sichuan peppercorn sauce and topped off with a sprinkle of a proprietary spice blend. As the American Chinese Original, Panda Express is the first to bring Sichuan peppercorn spice to the entire nation at once.

    To help spread the word about its newest dish, Panda Express will be hosting at activation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where convention-goers will have the chance to sample Sichuan Hot Chicken for free. Additionally, the pop-up, appropriately named Pep–Pep’s Sichuan Hot Stop, will give visitors the chance to meet the restaurant’s new “spokes-pepper” Pep-Pep the Sichuan Wonderpepper and check out a new mobile experience that will help get Pep-Pep to San Diego.
