Hot chicken strips at Panda Express? Count me in.

Prepare your taste buds for the ultimate tingle. In a new press release, Panda Express announces the release of Sichuan Hot Chicken Tenders which are chicken tenders made from the Sichuan peppercorns. Unlike many other Panda dishes, there’s no sweet sauce. So be prepared for hotness. According to Food & Wine, the tenders are even better than KFC Hot Chicken!

The Chinese-American fast casual change wants to bring authentic flavors to their lineup. Sichuan cuisine is one of eight major cuisines in China and chefs in the Sichuan Province region of China use the peppercorns heavily.
