My niece Vernice turned 10 months old today and I decided to cook pancit bihon and chicken afritada to celebrate. After I cooked, my siblings and their families came to eat and we ate the foods that I cooked. Pancit is always cooked when somebody celebrate her/his birthday and you know what, my pancit were all gone and nothing was left for me this morning.
1 8 oz. pack pancit bihon noodles
1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
3 1/2 cups of chicken broth
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1/2 cabbage, sliced into strips
1 onion, peeled and sliced
3 cloves of garlic, crushed and minced
2 carrots, sliced into strips
1/2 cup shrimps, shells removed
3/4 cup diced celery
1 cup sliced green beans
1. Grease a pot and saute the garlic and onions. Add the shrimps and chicken and cook for a couple of minutes. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1 chicken bouillon cube. Add all the vegetables and season with soy sauce and black pepper according to your taste.
2. In a large pan or wok, put the 3 cups of chicken broth. Add 2 tbsps of cooking oil, soy sauce, 1 chicken bouillon, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and let it simmer. Add the pancit bihon noodles stirring constantly and cook it till the noodles are tender and had absorbed all the broth. Then add the vegetables and mix it altogether.
