This Week's Recipe: Pancit


2 tsp Peanut Oil

3 cups Cooked Chicken Breast, diced

1 tbs GOYA Minced Garlic

1 Small Yellow Onion, finely diced

1 Pack Bihon Noodles

1 cup Fresh Green Beans, cut into 1in pieces

1/2 cup Carrots, thinly sliced

1 Small Head of Cabbage, shredded

12 oz Low Sodium Chicken Stock

2 tbs Dark Soy Sauce

2 tbs Oyster Sauce

1 tbs Sugar

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 Lemons, cut into wedges


1-Make Pancit Sauce: Mix Chicken stock, Soy Sauce, Oyster Sauce and Sugar in large a mixing bowl and whisk together.

2-In a large Wok or Deep Frying Pan heat Peanut Oil on medium. Add garlic, onion, green beans and carrots. Cook for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently. Add extra oil as needed.

3-Add cabbage and chicken to pan. Continue stirring until chicken is heated through and add salt and pepper to taste.

4- Still on medium heat, add Pancit Sauce into pan. Stir and let heat for about a minute. Add Bihon Noodles to pan. Using tongs, turn and press noodles into pan on all sides. The heated Pancit sauce will soften noodles as you turn and coat.

5-Add more chicken stock if needed. Once noodles are cooked, use tongs to mix all ingredients, in pan, together. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
