Pancit Canton

I have to admit the first time my husband asked me to make some Filipino food I was a little hesitant. You see I had heard all of his stories about how he ate chicken heads, feet and intestines, balot(rotten duck eggs), pig ear, and lots of other exotic stuff while he lived in the Philippines for two years serving an LDS mission. I also have to admit that I sure am glad I finally gave in and made him some. Because I discovered that I really like Filipino food.(minus the exotic stuff) And I bet that if you like pasta, veggies, chicken and a little soy sauce flavoring you will love it too! We now have several Filipino dishes that we enjoy on a regular basis.

You will need a few special ingredients for this dish. You will need the Mama Sita's chopsuey/pancit canton stir fry mix(the one on the left, the other one is for another recipe to come soon) and some Excellent Bihon noodles. I pick them up at our local Asian foods store but you can also purchase them online here.

Pancit Canton

1 lb. mixed vegetables(cauliflower, broccoli, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, carrots, peas any or all of these will work)

1/4-1/2 lb. meat -chicken or pork

1 cup water

2 Tbsp oil

8 oz. Bihon noodles

1. Pour the Mama Sita's stir fry mix in the 1 cup water and stir to dissolve. Set aside.
2. Heat the oil over medium/high heat in a large frying pan or stir fry pan. Cut the chicken into bit sized pieces and add to the oil, browning on both sides. Add the vegetables and stir fry mixture. Cook until the sauce thickens and the veggies are fork tender. Stir continually.
3. Fill a large sauce pan 2/3 full of water and bring it to a boil. Plunge the Bihon noodles into the boiling water for 1 minute. Remove from heat and drain.

4. Add the noodles to the meat and veggies. Stirring continually, cook over high heat for 2 minutes.
5. Enjoy!
