Panda Express Is Finally Bringing Back This Beloved Menu Item
It's a common practice among fast food restaurants to reinvent the menu. This has become even more apparent in 2019 with the addition of Popeyes's chicken sandwich, the demolition of Taco Bell's menu, and the introduction of a new steak option at Chipotle. Chains are constantly vying for your attention, and sometimes all it takes is the reintroduction of a beloved favorite.
That's Panda Express's strategy, anyway. The Chinese-American fast food chain is bringing back a crowd-pleasing favorite: Honey Sesame Chicken. This comes after a series of desperate tweets begging for the return of the saucy entree.

I consider us to be friends. Great friends. It would bring me so much joy to see you bring back that Honey Sesame Chicken. How can we make this happen? RT's? A Powerpoint presentation? A song? A video of me trying to make it, and failing? What's up?
How am I supposed to be happy when Panda Express still hasn’t brought back honey sesame chicken— Shay (@shxylyndeut) September 14, 2019
It's no wonder Honey Sesame Chicken has such a devoted following. It combines chicken breast, green beans, and yellow peppers that are then tossed in a sesame-laden honey sauce for a classic sweet and savory mash-up.
While Honey Sesame Chicken is again available at Panda Express locations across the country, it sadly won't stick around for long. You'll have to go soon to get your fix before the fan-favorite is discontinued again.
