Had my first meal at PF Chang's last week and it was AMAZING. I see several of you on here have been bowled over by the lettuce wraps. The whole meal was phenomenal. Anyone know where I can find, or have the recipie for their Kung Pao Chicken? It was fantastic. I have tried the CL Schezuan Chicken - that was fantastic. Not quite the same though!!
Kitchen Link has some PF Chang copykat recipes, but I didn't see Kung Pao Chicken. They do have the lettuce wraps and some other recipes though.

Another Chang fan here! No Kung Pao but here's another Chang recipe I found (http://www.gatewayno.com/Cuisine/rec...ngnoodles.html):
P.F. Chang's Cellophane Noodle Salad
8 ounces bean threads (a.k.a. cellophane noodles)
½ pound cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp
Julienned green onions, carrots and cucumber for garnish
Chopped cilantro for garnish
6 tbs soy sauce
6 tbs rice vinegar
2 tbs oyster sauce
6 tsp chili garlic sauce
3 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp sugar
Soak bean threads in warm water until soft, about 15 minutes; drain, Cut into four-inch lengths. Cook in a medium pot of boiling water for one minute. Drain, cool and pat dry. Combine the dressing ingredients and toss with the noodles to coat
thoroughly. Mound noodles on individual plates or a serving platter. Garnish with shrimp; julienned green onions, carrots and cucumber; bean sprouts and chopped cilantro.
I just looked at PF Chang's web site and no mention of the above salad on their menu. Hmm...maybe a flop they no longer serve or not a Chang afterall. Anyway, check out the web site: http://www.pfchangs.com You can download their whole menu and drool all day.
Its not PF Chang's recipe but I've become famous for it among my circle of friends and my SO requests it about once a week.
I would export it from Mastercook if I could figure out how....
