I was very happy to see my friend Brenda in a grocery store yesterday after a long time. It was my fault why we haven't seen each other that long. I told her I will come to her house to give her the leche flan I saved for her. She is the kind of person that is not afraid to try any kind of foods. So as soon as I got home, I cooked Bihon for her to take with me together with the flan.
I know that every Filipino knows how to prepare bihon but I would like to share the recipe anyway.
You will need:
2 chicken breasts
1 package bihon
chinese sausage (optional)
2 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups julianned carrots
1/2 cups sitsaro or snowpeas/ green beans

salt and ground pepper
1. In a pan, put the chicken breasts and 4 cups of water and boil.
2. Put also the laurel leaf, garlic, peppercorns, onion and salt.
3. When the meat is almost done, turn off the stove.

6. In a wok, put 2 tbsp of oil, sautee the garlic, onion and meat.
7. Then put in all the vegetables except cabbage.
8. Put a little bit of soysauce, then salt and pepper until you reached your desired taste.
9. Transfer to a bowl and set it aside.
10. In the same wok, put 1/4 cup of oil, garlic and onion until they turn brownish then put the chicken breast water.
11. Bring it to a boil.
