P.F. Chang's Home Menu Review and Giveaway.



When it comes to American-style Chinese food, no one can beat P.F. Chang's. Their food is Good with a capital G! We're lucky enough to have a P.F. Chang's not 5 minutes from our house, but it's one of those places we can't get to as often as we want due to budget constraints. Thanks to my visit to the Unilever Product Suite during BlogHer, I found out that P.F. Chang's now has a line of frozen entrees so that we can get that flavorful P.F. Chang's taste at home! They even sent me a coupon so I could try it out, and they're giving another one to one reader in the giveaway below. Now stop salivating and start reading.....


The Basics
P.F. Chang's Home Menu frozen entrees serve 2 people and are available in 8 flavors -- Beef with Broccoli, Orange Chicken, General Chang's Chicken, Sweet & Sour Chicken, Shanghai Style Beef, Ginger Chicken & Broccoli, Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and Shrimp Lo Mein. They are available in your grocery's store's freezer section.



Here's a snippet from the P.F. Chang's Home Menu press release:
With the introduction of new P.F. Chang's® Home Menu™, those who long for the signature Asian cuisine made famous by P.F. Chang's China Bistro® can now conquer their cravings at home. Created with the expert chefs at P.F. Chang's and produced and distributed by Unilever (NYSE: UL, UN), one of the world's largest consumer products companies, the P.F. Chang's Home Menu line includes eight premium frozen entrees with the bold flavors associated with P.F. Chang's.

Inspired by P.F. Chang's best-selling recipes, the line includes: Orange Chicken, Shanghai Style Beef, Sweet & Sour Chicken, General Chang's Chicken, Ginger Chicken & Broccoli, Beef with Broccoli, Shrimp in a Garlic Sauce and Shrimp Lo Mein. The two-serving entrees, which are made with high-quality ingredients and feature signature P.F. Chang's flavors, are convenient and easy to prepare, going from skillet to a succulent high-quality meal at home in just minutes. A patented packaging technology keeps food fresh-tasting for a premium dining experience.


The Basics
I used our coupon to get the General Chang's Chicken variety, and my family loved it! It's nice and flavorful, not bland at all, and certainly tastes like something you'd find at P.F. Chang's (note: the website says that these entrees are based on P.F. Chang recipes, not identical, so you won't get exactly the same taste as the dishes in the restaurant, but I thought they were delicious!). The broccoli was nice and crisp, and the chicken was flavorful and juicy. This is definitely something I'd buy again!



We were definitely left wanting more -- not only because it was so yummy, but also because each package is meant to serve two people. I think it would serve two people quite generously. Given the quantity of food, I was happy to note that calorie count was decent for Chinese food. Most flavors were around 320 to 360 calories per serving, with the lowest one being 290 per serving for the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce, and the highest being 450 per serving for the Orange Chicken.


The Blah
I was disappointed to see the high sodium values on each and every one of the 8 varieties, ranging from 35% of recommended daily allowance to a whopping 60% of RDA for the Shrimp Lo Mein. Fat content was not as shocking, but still high; I thought the fried entrees like Oriange Chicken would have the highest fat content, but the "winner" was actually Beef with Broccoli at 18 grams of fat (and 3 grams of saturated fat) per serving.


The Bottom Line
P.F. Chang's Home Menu frozen entrees are a great option when you want a yummy Chinese food meal at home, but don't have the time to cook -- or when you're craving the taste of P.F. Chang's, but don't have the money to book a table at the restaurant.


Try P.F. Chang's Home Menu for Free!
One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will win a coupon good for one free P.F. Chang's Home Menu frozen entree for two.
