  • 250 grams of bihon (rice noodles) or canton noodles
  • 2 tablespoons of cooking oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cups of cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 cup of cooked pork belly or pork shoulder, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cup of shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
  • 2 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Calamansi or lemon wedges for serving
  • Chopped green onions for garnish


  1. If using bihon (rice noodles), soak them in warm water for about 10-15 minutes until they are soft but not mushy. Drain and set aside. If using canton noodles, no soaking is required.
  2. In a large pan or wok, heat the cooking oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Sauté the minced garlic until fragrant but not browned.
  4. Add the sliced onions and cook until they become translucent.
  5. Add the cooked chicken breast, cooked pork, and shrimp to the pan. Stir-fry for a few minutes until the shrimp turns pink and opaque.
  6. Add the mixed vegetables to the pan. Stir-fry until the vegetables are slightly tender but still crisp.
  7. Push the meat and vegetables to the side of the pan and add the soaked bihon or canton noodles to the empty space.
  8. Pour the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and chicken or vegetable broth over the noodles and meat. Toss everything together until well combined.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  10. Continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the noodles are heated through and well-coated with the sauce.
  11. Transfer the Pancit Guisado to a serving platter.
  12. Garnish with chopped green onions and serve hot with calamansi or lemon wedges on the side.
