P.F. Chang's Chang's Spicy Chicken
By Todd Wilbur

Recipe Type: Entree
Calories: 830
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Recipe Rating: 5.0 (5 reviews)
Menu Description: "Lightly-dusted, stir fried in a sweet Szechwan sauce. (Our version of General Chu's.)"

The sweet and spicy zing in the secret sauce sets this recipe apart as one of P. F. Chang's top picks. If you're looking for something simple to make with those chicken breasts sitting in the fridge, this is a good choice. Once the sauce is finished all you have to do is saute your chicken and combine. And you'll probably want to make up a little white or brown rice, like at the restaurant. If you can't find straight chili sauce for this recipe, the more common chili sauce with garlic in it will work just as well.

The recipe was very close to the real thing. I didn't have the heat issue as others, but the chicken texture was a bit off. All-in-all...right on the money. This is now a recipe we will cycle with our other good eats!

I thought this recipe was just excellent and very close to the real thing. I added about two teaspoons of red hot pepper flakes which kicked it up just right. May add a little more of the pepper flakes next time. I had my daughter try it with her eyes closed and said "P.F. Changs!"

My roommates want to lick the bowl after it's all gone. Right on! I'd try a more spicy chili sauce though if you want that spicy zing the original dish has. The sweet is just as good though (haven't tried the garlic yet).

I followed the recipe and found that the texture of the chicken was not the same as Pei Wei or P.F. Changs. Instead it was smooth. I "fried" some chicken and used the sauce and decided it was much closer to the version I eat all the time. I don't think the company fries it the same way I did, but it was definitely good and definitely closer than the version here. The sauce is perfect. Just adjust the chicken!

This is my husband's favorite meal, and he says the clone is as close as you can get without eating at Chang's!
