Sprinkle in red pepper flakes to taste along with the soy sauce and dressing. Toss to coat, adding in half the peanuts. Sprinkle the the other half on top. 

Notes:
For packets of dressing see Minimus online.
Packets of peanuts can be found at fast food places that sell sundaes (about 1 Tbsp chopped per bag) and online.
3-ounce chicken pouches are not easy to find now. Use a 3-ounce can, often sold in 3 packs in large stores.
You can use any ramen like noodle, including rice noodles to achieve the taste you prefer. We used baked ramen in this recipe.
Asian style dressing can be found in most grocery stores, carry it in a plastic bottle for a day or two. Use between 3 and 4 Tablespoons.
