RECIPE: Filipino Pancit

Filipino Pancit


  • 1 (8 ounce) packages rice noodles, bihon
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cubed
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup carrot, sliced
  • 1 cup onion, sliced
  • 1/16 teaspoon Accent seasoning (msg)
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/8 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup green onion (optional)
  • lemon or lime slice (optional)


In a zip lock bag, marinade the cubed chicken with the teriyaki sauce and 2 cloves of minced garlic overnight. The next day, in a large bowl, soak the rice noodles in warm water for 15-30 minutes, drain completely. Drain the marinade off the chicken and discard the marinade.

In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium high heat and brown the chicken, drain and set aside.

In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on medium high heat and sauté 3 cloves of minced garlic and accent for 30 seconds.

Add the carrots and stir fry for about 5 minutes. Add the cabbage, onions, and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and stir fry until the vegetables are tender. Add the chicken to the vegetables and continue stir frying. Now add the noodles to the pot with 1/8 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of soy sauce and mix very well.

Keep cooking and mixing until the noodles are tender and cooked thoroughly.

Serve with the green onions and/or lemon juice from the lemon slices.
