I am an equal opportunity junk food lover, but when it's anything Asian, I'm even more on board. Fast, greasy, sometimes mildly-dried-out-from-sitting-under-heat-lamps food qualifies - that's how much I love soy sauce, sugar and spice. It's somehow ingrained in my weekly cravings; I can't escape it.
So I'm excited that Panda Express is offering a free single entrée -size portion of its Firecracker Chicken Breast this Thursday, February 3. Even better is how easy it is - there's no email signup or purchase necessary, just go here, print the coupon and head to Panda Express.
If you're not familiar with the Firecracker Chicken Breast, Panda Express describes it as "strips of marinated chicken breast, crisp red, green and yellow bell peppers, succulent sliced onions and red chili peppers all cooked to perfection in a wok with Panda's original zesty firecracker sauce."
Will all the bell peppers be crisp? Will the dish be cooked to perfection? I don't know, but I'm going to find out. And free food is never a bad thing.
