Special Pancit Canton Recipe

Filipinos have enjoyed different meals from other countries and later on made their own versions, such as “Pancit Canton”. This Filipino dish is usually served at birthday parties because of its symbolism of a long life represented by the long noodles. Pancit Canton is a variety of tossed noodles also known as Long Mien. Several chopped vegetables and diced meats are added to the flavored noodles to make it look more festive.

This recipe calls for chicken breast and liver as well as carrots and beans to give that extra crunch. And no worries if you suddenly make slurping sounds while eating these delicious noodles, remember it is polite to slurp in front of the Chinese because it means that you enjoy the meal.
