Pansit is a well known recipe in my homeland. The word “pansit” simply means noodles! There are so many kinds of dried noodles out there and sometimes it can be overwhelming which one to use.

The noodles that I’m using for this recipe is simple to make and you can find it at your local grocery stores, even Wal-Mart.

Pansit is a favorite not only at home but also among friends. I encourage you to give it a try and see for yourself!


Ingredients :

2 big boneless chicken breasts (cut in strips) 

1 onion (chopped)

2 cloves of garlic (chopped)

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp oil

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp hot pepper flakes

1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce


Heat the wok in a medium heat and add the oil plus the sesame oil. You may want to divide the chicken in two batches so divide the ingredients as well (as seen in the video).

Add the onions and garlic and cook for 2 minutes then the remaining seasonings and set aside (remove from the pan).

 Vegetables: (All vegetables cut into strips)

1 stalk celery 

1 cup of snow peas (clip both ends as seen in the video) 

1 cup of bean sprouts

½ red bell pepper

1 carrot

1 tsp fish sauce

Black ground pepper to taste

Lemon (optional)

pansit vegetables ingredients

In the same pan put the oil and start sautéing the vegetables for a few minutes not to overcook them. Then add the seasoning (fish sauce and ground pepper) and remove from the pan.

 farkay noodles


1 package FARKAY (steam fried noodles) 

2 cups of water

1 tbsp oil

1 tbsp soy sauce


In the same pan add the water, oil, and soy sauce and let it boil. Then add the noodles and let it cook for a few minutes until the noodles are well hydrated and tender.

It is important to constantly stir it; lower the heat at this time to allow the noodles to cook evenly without sticking/burning into the pan.

The noodles are perfectly cooked when it’s not crunchy or soggy. At this time all that’s left is to bring back all the ingredients into the pan then SERVE & ENJOY!



TIP: You may choose to serve this recipe to your guests or family in three separate dishes (one plate for the noodles, one plate for the chicken, one plate for the vegetables) or just put the three-in-one like I did!


My favorite way of eating this is by squeezing a little bit of lemon to it. Then I get a piece of bread or a bun and stuff it with pansit!
