Pancit is a classic Filipino recipe with regional variations in what meat, vegetables, and seasonings are used. And you can use other noodles as well, like bihon or rice noodles, or pancit noodles (though some find the yellow pancit a bit too thick and prefer thinner Asian type noodles). As you can see, there are endless varieties of ways to prepare this dish, the only limitation is your imagination. It can be made with pork, chicken, beef or seafood. This one uses pork, but feel free to use chicken tenders in place of the lean pork (and use chicken bouillon in place of the pork bouillon).
