From the Family Recipe Box: Pancit Bihon
Contributed by: Angelica Duria
Pancit Bihon is a childhood favorite and a noodle dish from my Filipino heritage. Think fried rice, but in noodle form! Even my toddler loves it!
Cook/prep time: 30 minutes

8oz pack of bihon/thin rice noodles/rice vermicelli
2 roasted chicken breasts, shredded from rotisserie chicken
2 cups chicken stock or broth
¼ cup soy sauce
1 onion, peeled and sliced thinly
½ head garlic, peeled and minced
2 large carrots, peeled and grated (or 1 cup of matchstick carrots)
½ pound of green beans, sliced thinly (roughly 1 cup)
2 stalks of celery, sliced thinly
1 small head of cabbage, sliced thinly
1 Tbsp vegetable oil or sesame oil
Lemon cut into wedges
- Prep and chop all the ingredients, so you have them ready to go.
- Heat up a large pot or wok to medium heat and add about ½ Tbsp vegetable oil. Sauté onions, garlic, carrots, green beans and celery. Add salt & pepper to taste and cook until veggies are soft. This takes about 5-7 minutes.
- Add shredded chicken and mix with softened vegetables. Combine chicken stock/broth and soy sauce. Pour the liquids to the pan and bring to a boil.
- Once liquid is boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and add the dry rice noodles to the pot. Since the noodles are really long, I usually break apart the dry noodles before putting into the pot. The noodles will soften as they absorb the liquid. Once all the noodles have soaked up the liquid, adjust heat to low. Add cabbage. Cover the pot/wok with a lid. Let sit for about 2 minutes to let noodles soften even more.
- Stir everything before serving. Serve with lemon wedges and squeeze juice onto noodles before eating.
