Pancit has been always an island-family favorite, and usually prepared for family gatherings, parties, pot-luck and almost served at any special event. This dish is great with a dash of lemon or lime squeezed over the noodles. Great also when served over white rice, or is a meal by itself! Your option! Enjoy!
1Use a large pot or Wok, bring heat to medium high. Add olive oil to saute onions and garlic. Let cook until onions turned translucent and garlic light brown in color. Add ginger.
2Add chicken and let cook for 5 minutes. Stir to blend. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, annatto powder and black pepper. Stir well to incorporate with sauce. Cover pan and cook for another 5-10min. to cook the chicken well.
3Add carrots, celery, bell pepper, sweet pea snaps and cabbage. Stir well to blend with chicken and let cook uncovered for 5 minutes. (Do Not over cook your veggies)
4Break up noodles and add into the pot. Add chicken broth to help cook the noodles. Stir well to blend together as cooks. Let cook until the noodles are soft and mixed with all the ingredients.
5Remove pot from heat. Transfer to your service platter. Garnish with green onions by sprinkling on top of cooked pancit. Arrange lemon or lime slices around the platter for a colorful presentation. Enjoy!
Tip: Great with a dash of sqeezed lemon or lime juice! Serve over white rice! :-)
