Pansit Sotanghon with Roast Chicken Breast. Most often we reserved the breast part of our roast chicken or lechon manok for a planned Pansit dish. Pansit Sotanghon with Roast Chicken Breast is not a new recipe. Most likely you have already cooked pansit sotanghon using your leftover lechon manok. Most of my readers may not need this recipe but again for those who are learning how to cook. This recipe will be a good guide.
There is nothing new in cooking pansit. Most versions are basically similar. Cooking pansit involved sautéing the meat ingredients with garlic and onions. Then it is just a matter of stirring in the other ingredients.
