My hubby is Filipino and when some of his family visited and had been in the states eating our food for so long, I thought I'd be brave and prepare one of their favorite dishes; pancit. I followed this recipe with only a couple exceptions. I added small shrimp along with the chicken and used "Silver Swan" soy sauce from the Philippines which we are fortunate enough to get at a local Oriental market. I have to tell you, I have never received so many compliments on a dish as I did this one. Our Philippine relatives were stunned that an American could make their national dish just like they do back home. My husband's aunt even asked for MY recipe. Oh my gosh, talk about anchored. Have since made this dish combining chicken and pork cut into bite size pieces and included the shrimp as well. Hubby took it to an office pot luck and while there called to ask me to fax the recipe to his office so he could copy it and give it to 13 people who had asked for it. I don't do this often but often enough to get rave reviews every time it graces our table! And yes, it makes a lot but we enjoy it even more re-heated and it is the perfect dish to share at a potluck. I can't thank you enough for sharing this tremendously popular recipe!
