Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken Breast Review

There’s a new entrée at Panda Express that combines several ingredients that we love. Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken Breast is described as “white meat chicken raised without antibiotics in a crunchy, signature puffed-rice breading, mixed with almonds, scallions, and wok-tossed in soy garlic sauce.”

We had to try it and see if it’s as savory and delicious as the description and pictures indicate. In this review, we will show you what Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken Breast looks like in real life and share our thoughts on this new offering.

We each got a bowl with the new Crispy Almond Chicken Breast and either chow mein noodles or fried rice. The bowls definitely looked and smelled amazing, but they seemed to be missing something.

Do you see scallions in there? We did not see or taste the scallions that are supposed to be included at all.

That being said, Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken Breast is still quite tasty and flavorful without the scallions. It had a mild sweetness mixed with savory notes of garlic, soy sauce, and ginger with a hint of spice. One reviewer noted that the flavor somewhat resembles that of General Tso chicken. The flavorful sauce combines well with the juicy, perfectly cooked chicken pieces and crunchy almond pieces, creating bites that contain a myriad of flavors and textures. Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken also goes well with their sides, especially the chow mein noodles.

They might have left out the scallions, but Panda Express definitely delivered the almonds and the flavors that we were looking for, so the ratings are good overall. One person even declared this entrée her new favorite item from Panda Express.

Summary and Rating

Panda Express Crispy Almond Chicken is a nice addition to the menu that we hope stays around for a long time.

Pros

  • Great flavor
  • Nice mix of textures
  • Hint of spice

Cons

  • None of ours had scallions

Rating: 8.75/10

If you like almonds and appreciate General Tso or sesame chicken dishes, you should definitely try the Crispy Almond Chicken Breast the next time you order from Panda Express. You can place an order for pickup or delivery through their website, or just walk-in or use the drive-thru and ask for it. It may even become your new go-to entrée!
