Panda Express is testing a chicken sandwich made with its signature Original Orange Chicken at five locations in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
The test will begin today, May 17 and run through July 11, according to a news release from the Rosemead-based chain.
The sandwich is made with crispy chicken glazed with orange sauce, topped with pickles and sriracha aioli on a potato bun.
It will be available at:
14480 Merced Ave, Baldwin Park.
8510 Firestone Blvd, Downey.
15528 Whittier Blvd B, Whittier.
25276 Marguerite Parkway No. 104, Mission Viejo.
27670-b Santa Margarita Parkway, Mission Viejo.
The sandwich is also being tested at five restaurants in Colorado, the news release said.
The OC Sandwich went through its first phase of testing last year at the Panda Express Innovation Kitchen in Pasadena, according to Adrian Lok, senior culinary innovation manager.
“It was a great response from both our guests and operators,” he said in a phone interview. “It’s moved on now to the next stage.”
The Innovation Kitchen is currently testing an item called Spicy Wagyu Beef Dumplings.
