Panda Express Recipes (EVERY ONE!) from the menu, from entrees to sides and appetizers! Quick, easy and they taste just like the original recipes.
Panda Express Recipes make it onto the blog pretty often and it felt more and more important to keep a page where you could go to see all the recipes in one place. There is a huge selection of copycat recipes on the blog, this page is your resource for everything Panda!
I got so many requests when I started re-creating Panda Express Recipes that it became a sort of a mission to get all of them! Hope you enjoy!
- Orange Chicken – The king of all Panda Express recipes, this copycat has been viewed over a half a million times in less than a year!
- Mushroom Chicken – One of the healthy picks on the menu, this recipe is easy to make, done in 15 mintues and tastes amazing!
- Honey Walnut Shrimp – No need to pay the extra for shrimp today, make it at home!
- Firecracker Chicken Breast – A healthier alternative to the super popular Sweetfire Chicken (see below)
- Chow Mein – The top selling side dish, just a few ingredients and ten minutes until you’re enjoying this delicious Chow Mein.
- Fried Rice – Passing on the Chow Mein, then surely you want this fried rice!
- Black Pepper Chicken – Another item on the healthy for you section of the menu, this chicken has a huge punch of flavor.
- Kung Pao Chicken – The authentic recipe shared by a Panda Express chef in Hawaii, there is nothing more fun than working with the exact recipe!
- Beijing Beef – Orange Chicken’s beefy brother, this is crispy, crunchy sweet and heat all at once!
- Mandarin Teriyaki Chicken – Healthy, easy and makes a great sauce for salmon and beef too!
- Sweet and Sour Sauce – Not going to lie I dip most entree items in this at least a little. 😉
- String Bean Chicken Breast – One of the healthiest entrees on the menu, you’ll love the fresh flavors!
- Cream Cheese Rangoon – Crispy, creamy and salty appetizer? Check, check, check!
- Beef and Broccoli – One of the original favorites! Didn’t think I would forget this one, did you?
- Sweetfire Chicken Breast – My new favorite (shh…don’t tell Orange Chicken I am totally cheating on it!)
- Mixed Veggies – Look if we NEED something totally healthy, I guess this is the best way to do it! These veggies have a secret source of awesome flavor!
Am I missing a dish you love? Let me know! If you made it all the way through this list you must love Panda Express Recipes!
How about the super greens I believe it’s called?
Thanks Heather – I will put that on the list!
eggplant & tofu recipe isn’t here
Thank you Dottie! I’ll add those to my list to test!
Absolutely delicious I made the kung pao chicken without the Chile’s cuz I have small children we love it. Thank you for sharing
Any chance you can create the spicy eggplant that used to be on Panda’s menu?
How about the creamy cilantro lime dressing from El Pollo Loco?
Those are great suggestions, we’ll definitely look into those!
You missed spring roll recipie, cannot find it
Please post Panda Express Almond Chicken. They took it out too fast!
One selection Panda Express no longer offers was a favorite of mine:
Eggplant & Tofu with Garlic Sauce.
I was just going to submit this. It was one of my all time favorites.
Sabrina! Can you please do the five flavor shrimp. Pleeeeeeease??
Do you have anything from the Chicken Salad Chick I love their chicken salad mixes?
Hello Ann, I am so sorry but I do not have any from them.
Do you have the Panda Express Garlic Eggplant recipe? Love it.
Ah the eggplant tofu? I do not, but I could work on it!
There was something that they took off the menu several years ago and I can’t remember what it was called. I’d get it with the Orange Chicken and it was SO good…I’d give anything to 1)remember what it was called, and 2)to have a copycat recipe of it
I loved your recipes. I would love recipes of original jewish food
How about their teriyaki chicken?
Here’s a direct link:
The best thing they got is the angus steak. You missed that one. Been on their menu for years.
Would love if you can copycat their black pepper angus steak recipe with broccolini. They replaced the shanghai angus steak with this one. Thank you!
I’ll add it to my research list. Thanks for the suggestion.
Do you have the recipe for tai cashew chicken?
It’s not a Panda Express copycat but I have this cashew chicken recipe:
Hope this helps!
I love their hot & sour soup I COULD NOT believe they took it off the menu (I’m hoping it’s a seasonal item & not discontinued)
I’ll add it to my research list. Thanks for the suggestion.
I love your recipes! Thanks so much! Do you have a recipe for the coconut shrimp? That is my favorite
Not a Panda Express copycat recipe but still yummy!
Do you have any suggestions on their spring rolls and sweet and sour sauce? Can’t wait to try some of these recipes. Thank you!
I have the recipe for their copycat sweet and sour sauce. I’ll add their spring rolls to my research list.
I’d love to see you do their seasonal dish (which should be put on the regular menu) honey sesame chicken!
Can you please do a copycat recipe for panda express 5 flavor shrimp? PLEEEEZE! Thanks
Added it to my research list. Thanks for the suggestion!
I’d love it if you had Panda Express’ recipe for Honey Sesame Chicken (which they’ve only had off and on a couple times).
I’m working on perfecting it for sure, it’s hard because it disappears so fast!! I do have a sesame chicken recipe that has variation to make it honey sesame chicken. It’s just missing the veggies but comes close (not exact) to Panda!
I see others requested it too, but I vote for Panda Express’s eggplant tofu recipe. Not all PE’s have it, but it is still available.
I’ll add that to my list, thanks!
Me too! I would love the copycat recipe for the eggplant tofu.
It’s so tasty! Thanks for the recommendation!
YES, eggplant tofu!! I was so excited when I read that you had every single Panda Express recipe, but then was so disappointed that this was not one of them. 🙁
I’ll add it to my research list. Thanks for the suggestion.
I’m a Foodie from Portland and like to have more recipes Such as Filipino food like bistek and pancit or Hawaiian recipes Khalsa pork and Mac salads are a plus
IDK iF Panda Express still makes this one but for vegetarians it was soooo good it had egg plant, tofu, veggies and noodles and possibly cashews or peanuts. I haven’t had it in 17 years (i moved to a deserted island ) but if you could find it oh man would I love to have that recipe. Thanks love what you do here. Brandee
What about the Honey Walnut shrimp?
Panda Express had an Angus Beef with Aparagus that was spicy & delicious. Any chance you can develop a copy cat recipe for that?
I’ll add it to my list. Thanks for the suggestion!
Can you create a GoFundMe for us to pay you to go eat these “missing” recipes, practice these meals, and then give us out the recipes? I’d like to help fund you for that. Again, however all of us can help you … I want to be part of that Group to reward you back for giving so much to all of us. Basically, I don’t want to “freeload” off of you & your work.
Sincerely, David Fullerton
You are too sweet but that’s not necessary. I enjoy doing this and I’m glad you’re loving the recipes.
They had a 5 flavor shrimp that was awesome and no longer carry. Do you know the recipe to that by chance. I’m very excited to try these recipes.
I don’t but I’ll add it to my list to research. Thanks for the suggestion!
I want more recipe of any kind plizz
Could you do their honey sesame chicken please? It’s a seasonal item but by far their best entre.
I’ll add it to my list. Thanks for the suggestion. 🙂
I’ve made the mushroom chicken, the walnut honey shrimp and the orange chicken and all three are excellent! I used too big of an orange for the orange chicken (no actual measurement is given), but otherwise it was awesome. I’ll use a medium size orange next time. I highly recommend all of these and I plan to try the other recipes as well. I’ll let you know what I think of those. So far three for three! Thanks for the recipes.?
So glad you’re enjoying all of the recipes!

I would love a recreation of the treasure shrimp recipe!!!
Only one I can tell that is missing is the honey sesame chicken that Panda only has at certain times of the year… can you do that one?? I love it!!
I don’t have any information for that one, sorry.
Love your recipes. I have made the Honey Walnut Shrimp and the Chow Main. Thank you so much for all of them. Wondering if you’re going to have one for the Honey Sesame Chicken breast. Thank you again.
I’ll add that to the to do list 🙂
I LOVE THE RECIPE BUT HOW DO I PRINT IT?
Don’t panic, Barry. This is only a listing of recipes – each picture has a link to the full post and recipe for each item. The recipe card for each recipe has a button you can click on to format the recipe for printing. Hope that helps!
Hi, I just found your blog just now, so I haven’t tried any out yet, but I’m definitely going to! My new favorite is a steak and shrimp that is a little spicy. If you are still recreating new ones, I’d love for you to try that one! 🙂 Do you ever freeze them after you’ve made one?
I’m working on the steak and shrimp recipe….stay tuned!
Panda Express now makes a mushroom chicken with zucchini. It’s very good. Can you look into this dish and replicate? It’s really good and I would love to try and make it at home. Thanks
I would like the shanghai angus steak recipe
A few recipes I’d like to try at home if you could get your hands on the recipe, there almond cookies, crab rangoon, an chicken pot stickers. A few others from other Chinese restaurants, like the boneless spare ribs, and the beef an pork lo mein. Love your recipes, I’ve only tried the cream cheese ragoon, trying the general tso chicken next looking forward to your next Chinese food dish!! ???
Have you tried panda’s peking pork, I know they don’t offer it all the time. I’d love to make that one.
Sorry, I don’t have a recipe for it.
you have the sweet and sour sauce. can you find the panda express recipe for their teriyaki sauce.
I have a recipe for Panda Express Teryiaki Chicken that includes the sauce you’re looking for. Enjoy!
PE has put their Orange Chicken sauce and the Mandarin Chicken sauce out in grocery stores now. Found these two at Wal-Mart, and would love for them to put more of their sauces and perhaps seasonings out as well.
I think you missed the Spicy Eggplant and Tofu recipe. Based on these recipes, I’ll bet you come up with a fantastic platter!
That’s the one I was looking for as well. I’d heard they don’t make it anymore. I haven’t been to a panda ex. In 17 years since moving but it used to be my favorite dish. I hope she can find it.
So far I’ve made the Kung Pao Chicken, Firecracker Chicken and Kung Pao (Shrimp) since I had a bunch of shrimp I didn’t cook from a different meal. They we all amazing my family loved them. Thanks Sooo much for these awesome any easy recipes. Today it’s String Bean Chicken Breast with Chow Mein!
Love it! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying them all!
Oh my!!! You may be my new favorite person!! My son is about to come home from college at thanksgiving and panda has been our thing for years!! I’m ready, thank to you and your hard work. I’ll come back and leave the five stars once I’ve made them all, can’t wait!! And thanks a ton!!
That’ll be such a nice surprise for him, Misty! Hope you all enjoy it!
Honey Sesame Chicken!!’ My favorite, and u fortunately one of those seasonal ones.
I haven’t been able to find it locally to be able to do a side-by-side taste comparison but it’s on my list so stay tuned.
Their honey sesame chicken is a seasonal dish they won’t put it on the permanent menu but it’s one of my favorites! Have you tried to recreate it yet?
Working on it!
Have you done the Panda Express Potato Chicken?
I WOULD GIVE MY RIGHT ARM FOR THAT RECIPE. I want to recreate it so badly but it was discontinued and I can’t get it. I wrote and called Panda Express to ask for it. They even once reached out to me to ask me to promote something for them and I replied with, “sure in exchange for the potato chicken recipe” and they said no.
the Potato Chicken is SO GOOD. I keep hoping they’ll bring it back, but they haven’t :c One can hope, I suppose.
Have you done the Eggplant Tofu yet?
I have been testing it for a while. I don’t quite understand the texture they get on the tofu. I am still testing if its deep fried and if so for how long. I’ve eaten way too many of these plates! And YES, I miss the potato chicken! I want it back!
I’ve made the tofu the way they did once using firm tofu and just quickly cooking in a wok til golden. You can marinate it with soy sauce and ginger prior to cooking it gives it some taste
The potato chicken was never discontinued in my area. We get it all the time! Keep an eye out when you travel (I’m in L.A. County btw)
Thanks for the tip!
I have not tried this but thought I would share the recipe for potato chicken stir fry.
They claim it is from a Panda Express cook.
Thank you! I had another person send that one to me too. I need to start working on it in the new year. Thanks so much for thinking of me.
How about their grilled Asian chicken with teriyaki sauce, it’s the best!!!
Sorry I didn’t add it to the roundup but it is definitely on the blog: https://dinnerthendessert.com/panda-express-mandarin-teriyaki-chicken/
Can you tell me how to do their five flavored shrimp please.
I haven’t tried that one yet. I have to check it out and let you know.
How about garlic chicken? Spicy!
how about their spring rolls they have chicken and vegi would love to see these
Please, oh please, can you make a copycat recipe for their eggrolls?! That’s the only item I love that’s missing from this list 🙂 Unless you can also recreate their sweet awesome fortune cookies!
I too grew up on Panda Inn and Panda Express after living in central and southern California as a kid, but after moving back to Texas (and way out in the country), I have neither, so I’ll be trying many of these items soon! 🙂
It’s on my to do list 😉
Shanghai Angus steak!!!!
Do you know how to do their honey sesame chicken they used to have???
Nope, sorry 🙁 I also wish I had a chance to recreate the Potato Chicken but it went away before I got to it.
Sesame chicken. My favorite. I have been waiting a year for them to bring back.
Thanks for this! How about general tso’s ?
Yes, that’s definitely a good one too! If you go to the site and type in General Tso’s into the search option, you’ll find the recipe there. Enjoy!
Hello, thank you for the recipes. I love their Firecracker Chicken!!! Are you able to copy cat that recipe?
Yes, I have that one too! Just go to the search option on the blog and type in Panda Express Firecracker Chicken, it will take you right to it! Enjoy!
I would love to see a Honey Sesame Chicken Copycat! I love it, but they don’t have it year round 🙁
That sounds delicious! I haven’t ever seen the entree in the store but the second I do I will snag 2 large orders and get to experimenting with it!
I second this request! The Honey Sesame Chicken is amazing and I’m always sad when they only bring it back for a limited time. I would love to be able to make this one at home.
Yes! So much desire for this recipe! I would be eternally grateful! <3
They have a steak dish that costs a dollar extra that is delicious. I would love that! Thanks for th copycats. 🙂
Yes! I have that one coming next week! I don’t know how I missed it!
I don’t see my favorite Eggplant and Tofu dish from Panda Express.
My silly local Panda doesn’t carry it because it doesn’t sell well.
You’re right, I hadn’t done that recipe yet. Keep an eye on the blog for next week! 😉
I love that too!!
Me. Too. Lol.
Yum, I am gluten free so Panda is not part of my life any longer, but this is a great starting point. Just switch out the flour and the thickening agent and I can enjoy my favorites again. 🙂
I’m so glad to provide you an avenue to enjoy your favorite restaurant dishes again!
Love your recipes! Looking for PE’s copycat recipe for Angus Steak (spicy) with Asparagus (seasonal), as it’s crazy good! I think there’s a PE string bean, onion, & Angus steak dish that I’d love the recipe for also. Thanks so much for your recipes!!!
I have already tried more than few of your Panda Express copy cat recipes!! Your version of Panda Express is FAR BETTER than Panda’s!!! Hopefully, you are not sued by them and you can keep re-creating BETTER version for all of us 😀 Seriously!!!
Thank you so much Doremi! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying these!
