Filipino Pancit Bihon

Pancit Bihon is a sweet and savoury Filipino rice noodle dish. It is an easy dish prepared in one pot. Surprisingly, you don't have to cook the rice noodles separately either. Traditionally pork and chicken along with the veggies are added to the dish. I have used chicken, chilli peppers, carrots and cabbage. Feel free to add any veggie you prefer. Snow peas and bean sprouts would be great too.

Step 1:

In a large stir-fry pan/wok, add oil and let it heat up on a medium-high flame.

Step 2:

Add finely chopped garlic and onion, sauté for 2 minutes and then add the chicken pieces. Spread them in a layer and cook them for 2 minutes on a high flame. Flip and cook them for 2 minutes on the other side until they are slightly brown.

Step 3:

Add the veggies and stir-fry them for 2-3 minutes until they are soft but still retaining a slight crunch.

Step 4:

Add the sauces, black pepper powder and chicken stock, mix well.

Step 5:

Now add the rice noodles. Let the noodles soak up the sauces and cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip them once, cover and cook for 3-4 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed by the noodles.

Step 6:

Garnish with spring onions and enjoy!
