Pancit is famous in the Philippines during birthdays and special occasions. For Filipinos, it symbolizes long life. The noodles used are introduced by the Chinese and was later adopted in the Filipino cuisine.
There are varieties of pancit made in the Philippines depending on the type of noodles and ingredients used. Pancit could be in a fried, stew or soup form.
I used chicken meat instead of pork in this version.

1 pc green bell pepper, sliced
