      Do you know how many this makes? This is one of my favorite things to order at P.F.Changs. I haven’t been able to go there in a while.

      I’m not sure how much it makes, but it says 1 to 1 1/2 lbs of chicken with is enough chicken for several servings. Once you add the mushrooms, noodles, etc I would think it makes enough for at least 6 people. (That is purely a guess.) I guess it would also depend on how much everyone eats & also if you are going to serve other things as well or just the wraps.

      Sorry I can’t be more helpful… 🙂
