I got this recipe from my mother when I moved out of the house, because I wanted to make filipino food that she used to cook for us so that I can cook them for my family and keep passing down the recipes. This is one of my favorites! My family absolutely loves it. Its definitely worth all the work done to make this dish.
- 1 (8 ounce) package rice noodles, bihon
- 1 lb chicken breast, cubed
- 1⁄2 cup teriyaki sauce
- 5 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups cabbage, chopped

- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1⁄8 cup cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄2 cup green onion (optional)
- lemon slice (optional)
- In a zip lock bag, marinade the cubed chicken with the teriyaki sauce and 2 cloves of minced garlic overnight.
- The next day, in a large bowl, soak the rice noodles in warm water for 15-30 minutes, drain completely.
- Drain the marinade off the chicken and discard the marinade.
- In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium high heat and brown the chicken, drain and set aside.

- Now add the noodles to the pot with 1/8 cup of oil and 1/4 cup of soy sauce and mix very well.
- Keep cooking and mixing until the noodles are tender and cooked thoroughly.
- Serve with the green onions and/or lemon juice from the lemon slices.
I did make a few changes to this recipe to suit our personal preferences. I used a little sesame oil and added some extra veggies that I had that needed to be used up in the fridge, like bok choy, corn and diced red pepper. I left out the Accent as I did not have any on hand and I added a few splashes of mirin and oyster sauce. I think this is a versatile recipe that can be adapted to suit your own tastes. Thanks for the recipe.
I made this last evening for my husband's birthday party. Everyone loved it! No left overs... The only changes I made I used olive oil instead of ordinary oil... I am proud and glad to try this recipe cos this is my first time making bihon and it turned out really good! Thanks much for sharing! ;)
Wonderful and very much authentic!! Our dear friends & her mother make the exact same dish. We are in heaven that we have a recipe that duplicates it!!! Thank you! :)
