Delicious Pancit Bihon recipe with chicken and vegetables. Quick and easy dinner idea for any night of the week.

Again I’ve been blessed with great friends who bring the best food to the BBQ. This time it was pancit to go with the delicious lumpia. But I had T minus 10 days to get my friend over to teach me exactly how she makes hers, before her family retired back home to Guam.

Between appointments and the movers we found a little time for a mommy and kids playdate. An afternoon filled with chopping vegetables and rolling lumpia while the kids played outside for the second to last time together.

Since then, pancit and lumpia have become something that my family asks for on a weekly basis. I can’t blame them really. It has been a nice change from the normal dinner menu that we occasionally find ourselves slipping into. Not to mention it’s delicious and a lot faster to make than you might think.

RICE NOODLES

With the vegetables removed, add two cups of water along with the Mama Sita’s seasoning packet to the large skillet. Mix until combined and bring to a simmer. Add 8 oz of rice noodles, gently tossing to allow the noodles to soak in the liquid. If the mixture becomes a little dry add a bit more water to the noodles.

Once the noodles are cooked, top with half the chicken and vegetable mixture. Toss. The noodles should only take 4-5 minutes to soak up the liquid and become soft.

Transfer to a serving dish and top with remaining chicken and vegetables along with the green onions.

Note- You may find the noodles easier to work with if you cut them in half before placing them in the simmering liquid.

Note- If you’d like a substitute for the Mama Sita’s Pancit Bihon seasoning, you can also use 2 cups chicken broth, 2 TBS oyster sauce, 2-3 TBS soy sauce and 1/2 tsp. sugar.

Both versions are absolutely delicious and in this house we’ll even make this recipe with half bihon and half canton noodles.
