Filipino Pancit

"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."

    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.

    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! :)

    I made this last night and left out the Accent (MSG!) on purpose as that is I why I cook from scratch. MSG will put me in the hospital. I also changed out the chicken for shrimp. Great recipe but please stay away from the MSG - it is so very unhealthy.

    I made this with a few changes. I added a half cup of chicken broth as I found it a little dry. Added a bag of frozen mixed vegetables and some extra teriyaki sauce

    Thank you so much for sharing your Mother's recipe :) I made this last night and it turned out wonderful !!! My coworkers always have Pancit at potlucks, and I really like it, and now that I found a great recipe..I can make it too. I used Olive Oil instead of Cooking Oil, and added in Shrimp. As always the lemon juice from the lemon slice give this dish an extra zest to something that is already pretty tasty ! Again thanks ever so much for sharing. My Emily Rose's nose was working OT !!
