Review: This pleasant blend of noodles and crunchy vegetables (broccoli, green beans, red peppers and carrots) gets smothered by the overabundant hot sauce -- even after tossing with boneless chicken breast. Add the optional peanuts and snow peas or bamboo shoots, and you'll diffuse the sauce, creating a fair imitation of Kung Pao chicken. No MSG here, but you'll get 60 percent of a day's dose of salt with each serving.
