- 250 grams of pancit bihon noodles

- 250 grams of shrimp, peeled and deveined

- 1 medium-sized onion, minced

- 4 cloves of garlic, minced

- 1 medium-sized carrot, julienned

- 1 small cabbage, shredded

- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce

- 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce

- 1 tablespoon of fish sauce

- 1 cup of chicken broth

- 2 tablespoons of cooking oil

- Salt and pepper to taste

- Calamansi or lemon wedges (for serving)


1. Prepare the pancit bihon noodles by soaking them in water for 5 to 10 minutes or until they become soft. Drain and set aside.

2. In a large wok or skillet, heat the cooking oil over medium heat. Sauté the minced garlic and onion until fragrant and translucent.

3. Add the chicken slices to the wok and cook until they are no longer pink. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking.

4. Once the chicken is cooked, add the shrimp to the wok and cook until they turn pink and opaque. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp as they can become tough.

5. Add the julienned carrots and shredded cabbage to the wok and stir-fry for a few minutes until they begin to soften.

6. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and fish sauce. Pour the sauce mixture into the wok, ensuring that all the ingredients are coated evenly.

7. Add the drained pancit bihon noodles to the wok and toss them with the other ingredients. Stir-fry for a few minutes until the noodles are well-coated with the sauce.

8. Gradually pour the chicken broth into the wok, stirring continuously. This will help soften the noodles and infuse them with flavor.

9. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.

10. Continue cooking the pancit bihon until the noodles have absorbed the liquid and become tender. Be careful not to overcook the noodles, as they can become mushy.

11. Once the pancit bihon is cooked, remove the wok from the heat and transfer the dish to a serving platter.

12. Serve the pancit bihon chicken and shrimp hot, garnishing with calamansi or lemon wedges on the side. Squeeze the citrus juice over the noodles before eating to add a tangy flavor.

Enjoy your homemade pansit bihon with chicken and shrimp! This delightful dish is not only visually appealing but also packed with delicious flavors that will surely satisfy your taste buds. Feel free to add other vegetables or protein of your choice to make it your own signature pancit dish.
