Give me a plate of pancit bihon or sautéed rice noodles, and I will sit in my own corner at the table and enjoy every single forkful I get. I love this dish, always have and always will. I guess I can say that it's one of my comfort foods, especially when I was young. I liked having it for an afternoon snack, between the big meals, with a few squeezes of calamansi lemons (or regular lemons when they are not available) mixed with fish sauce to make the flavors stronger, just like how I like it.
Being away from the Philippines, I started to make my own version and adapted it to my husband's and kids' tastes. Traditionally, there would be pork belly and shrimp, but I opted for something healthier and replaced the pork with chicken white meat. Sometimes I add shrimp for more flavor but since my family likes it simple and healthy, I just stick with the chicken. So here you go, a simplified and healthier version of the noodle dish I grew up with.
