Introduced in 1987 by former Executive Chef, Chef Andy Kao, Orange Chicken has become a signature dish with more than 103 million pounds of Orange Chicken served at Panda Express each year. Rooted in the brand’s authentic, Chinese origins and inspired by American flavors, The Original Orange Chicken has become a cultural phenomenon, captivating the hearts (and mouths) of our fans since day one. 

Over the years, Panda has innovated creative ways for Orange Chicken fans to indulge in unique experiences, from the Orange Chicken Sandwich to even its first plant-based entree, Beyond The Original Orange Chicken. The Original Orange Chicken will forever remain a signature staple of American Chinese cuisine, and we are extremely proud to celebrate its 35 years.
