P.F. Chang’s brings noodle dishes ‘home’
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — P.F. Chang’s has introduced four new frozen noodle entrees under its Home Menu line.
The line, which is produced and distributed by Unilever, feature Asian vegetables, protein and "noodle nests" that unravel in the skillet midway through cooking as the noodles get coated in a flavor-packed sauce, the company said.
The two-serving P.F. Chang’s Home Menu noodle meals are available in following varieties:
Garlic chicken with dan dan noodles: White meat chicken with a garlic sauce, bell peppers, bok choy and yakisoba noodles;
Pepper steak with chow fun noodles: Steak with a sweet and peppery sauce, bell peppers, onions and chow fun noodles;
Grilled chicken teriyaki with lo mein noodles: Grilled chicken with a teriyaki sauce, pineapple, red bell peppers, onions and lo mein noodles; and
Firecracker shrimp with yakisoba noodles: Lightly battered shrimp with spicy sauce, carrots, edamame, onions and yakisoba noodles.
"Noodles have become one of the most popular trends in the culinary world, but until now, options for packaged noodle dishes were limited," Unilever senior marketing manager Rogier Smeets said. "After the success of the initial P.F. Chang’s Home Menu line introduced last year, we wanted to give P.F. Chang’s fans new ways to enjoy their favorite meals when they can’t get to the restaurant, and noodles were at the top of our list."
