Even Panda Express Is Serving Kale Now

Sure, why not: Chinese fast-food chain Panda Express is joining the trendy kale bandwagon with a new healthy menu item that stir-fries kale with shiitake mushrooms and chicken breast. The "WokSmart" Shiitake Kale Chicken Breast clocks in at 170 calories and is part of a "yin-and-yang" tandem of new dishes: It can be paired with a "more decadent" menu item that basically adds bacon to its existing Orange Chicken recipe, to create the aptly named Orange Chicken and Bacon.

Panda Express had been teasing the new dishes on Facebook since last week, officially announcing the kale bowl yesterday. And though it hasn't revealed the Orange Chicken with Bacon dish to fans yet, it currently appears, along with the kale, on the official website's "Limited Time Only" section. (Spoiler alert, sorry.)
