Pancit..a Noodle Dish from the Philippines

This is a wonderful noodle dish that our friends from the Philippines make. This recipe was given to me by my friend Cathy. We have enjoyed delicious dishes from the Philippines many times and this one is always on the table. I usually see it served in foil pans so I thought I should do the same.
This is a large recipe, you may want to share or you can make half the recipe.
  • 16 oz package of vermicelli rice noodles
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped 
  • 1 cup carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • 4 cups green cabbage, finely chopped
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced or you can use pork
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges
  1. Prepare noodles according to package instructions, drain and set aside.
  2. In a large pot or wok (on medium heat) add cooking oil and saute garlic and onion. 
  3. Add onions, carrots, celery, cabbage, snow peas, and cook until vegetables are tender crisp, 5 to 10 minutes (depending on the size of your cut vegetables).
  4. Add chicken, chicken broth, and cooked vermicelli rice noodles (that were prepared and set aside) to the vegetable mixture until well combined. Stir in soy sauce, salt, and pepper.
  5. Continue cooking until liquid has completely evaporated.
  6. Serve hot. Serve with lemon wedges at the table, you can squeeze a little juice over your serving. Some may also like an extra splash of soy sauce.
  7. Serves: 8 to 10


  1. Thank you for this recipe. I have been looking for one, as this is one of my favorite dishes from the Philippines. I was first introduced to it while living in China and have never been able to reproduce it to my satisfaction. Looking forward to giving this a try.

  2. I think that this will be a hit at our Thanksgiving Potluck this weekend!
