I love a good ethnic dish and this Pancit Recipe is one that we have always enjoyed! I learned it from a friend of the family many years ago and we haven’t turned back.

It has a variety of ingredients, most of which you can easily get at your local grocer, so that is a real big plus for us when it comes to this dish.

Done in just a little under 1 hour from prep to finish it makes a great dinner or lunch recipe that you will want to make over and over again.

At least we do, we can’t get enough of it and with all the ingredients it is filling enough that you can enjoy it as a whole meal in itself. 

If you are a fan of trying new dishes like we are then you absolutely have to try this Pancit Recipe, it will quickly be one that becomes a regular menu option.

Some of our other favorite ethnic themed recipes that we have on our site include: Chicken Lettuce Wraps, The Best Sweet and Sour Chicken and Sweet Ginger Soy Ribs.

Ingredients needed to make a Pancit Recipe.

HOW TO MAKE A PANCIT RECIPE:


  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. 


  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the peanut oil in a wok or nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once shimmering, add the seasoned chicken and cook until browned, approximately 6-10 minutes. Stir frequently to make sure it cooks evenly. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan and set aside. 


  3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil into the skillet and allow to heat. Add the onions, sauté until they are translucent, about 1-2 minutes, stirring often. 


  4. Add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds or up to a minute 1 minute, stirring frequently, until softened and browning slightly. 


  5. Next, add the green beans, cabbage, and carrots. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until softened, stirring often. 

  6. Reduce to low heat and add the chicken stock, dark soy, reduced-sodium soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved fully and is at a gentle simmer, about 1-2 minutes.

  7. Add the chicken back to your wok or skillet.


  8. Turn off the heat. Break your noodle block in half and add it to the wok or pan. Make sure to stir the noodles so they are completely coated in the sauce. If you don’t have enough sauce to coat them, add an additional 1/4 – ½ cup of chicken stock until they are. Once the noodles are coated, cover, and cook until the noodles are soft and most of the sauce has been absorbed. This will take about 2 minutes total.

WHAT IF I CAN’T FIND BIHON NOODLES?

If we cannot find them in the ethnic section of our grocery store they are easily available to order on Amazon.

If you decide that you do not want to use the Bihon noodles you can substitute for rice vermicelli as well.

CAN I USE OTHER MEATS?

Usually, we use chicken but pork can also be used in this, you will still want to cut it into smaller pieces just like you would do with the chicken.

So those are the only two ways that we have made it, but you can even leave the meat out if you do not want to include that as well.

WHAT CAN I SERVE WITH PANCIT?

If we really want to make this a meal then we do add some side dishes or appetizers to compliment this dish, some include:

  1. Lumpia
  2. Filipino Garlic Fried Rice
  3. Kinilaw
  4. Sisi
