When it was time for me to think about new dishes to create and make clean, I decided that I should try a whole food version of homemade pancit. Pancit is a rice noodle dish….a great Filipino dish that is really popular, but simple to make.
This dish was perfect for me to try because I really love to try new foods. This was one that I had not even heard of before!
I was surprised at how easy this dish was to prepare and how quickly I could fix it. Now, the version of Pancit that I made is slightly different than some traditional Pancit. Traditional pancit calls for cabbage and fish sauce. Instead of cabbage, I used green peppers. Some recipes call for pork tenderloin and chicken, but I just used chicken. It was very yummy and made for great leftovers too!!
This recipe is naturally gluten free….bonus!
- 1 pkg 8-12 oz dry brown rice noodles
- 2 tsp extra virgin coconut oil
- 5 cloves of garlic chopped finely
- 1 onion chopped finely
- 4 carrots chopped finely
- 1/2 green bell pepper chopped finely
- 2 cups cooked chicken breast chopped finely
- 1/3 cup coconut aminos
- 2 lemons or limes cut into wedges
Place brown rice noodles in a large bowl with hot water and allow them to sit until softened.
Drain noodles and set aside.
Heat coconut oil in wok over medium heat.
Add onion, garlic, carrot and green pepper and saute until the onion is translucent.
Add the pre-cooked chicken and coconut aminos and mix well.
Add noodles and toss well so that the noodles are coated with soy sauce.
Allow the noodles to cook through, stirring continuously.
Garnish with lemon wedges and serve!
