Pop Top: Pandas and chicken breast don't mix

Grade: C

Panda Express tries to lure customers with its new Sweet Fire Chicken Breast , wok-tossed chicken nuggets with diced onions, red bell peppers and pineapple, drenched in a chili sauce. For a 5.8-ounce serving, it's 440 calories with 18 grams of fat. Taste-wise, though, it's disappointing, with the sauce providing no zesty kick while covering a tough chicken breast. After the meal, my fortune cookie read "You Will Find Good Fortune in Love." But not with this menu item: Stick to the Orange Chicken.
