I've been trying to re-create the flavor of pancit that a filipino friend of mine made several years ago. The taste of what I sought was etched in my memory. This recipe was a wonderful blueprint to help me on my way. Pancit is a very versatile dish and additional vegetables can be added ad lib. In my case I added diced baby bella mushrooms, 4 cloves minced garlic and 1/2 sliced onion. I remembered sliced celery and sprouts included in my friends rendition. As I only had boneless chicken thighs for meat that's what I used. I wouldn't hesitate to also include diced dry fried tofu. The cabbage and carrots are a must. To season I used about 1 T. fish sauce and about 1/4 c soy sauce. One other preparation note that I thought added to the flavor but not necessary was after soaking and draining the noodles, I brought to a boil my favorite broth and cooked the noodles about 3 minutes. This softened them enough to eat then, I just pulled them straight out of that pot into the skillet everything else was. I used a bit of the broth to help disperse the fish and soy sauce. Added another generous sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper and it was a wonderful and healthy meal.
