WATCH: How To Cook An Easy Chicken Chow Mein
An easy pancit with an Asian flavor twist.
This pancit canton recipe is quite different from the usual pancit canton you are used to. Instead of the usual vegetables, peppers take its place and instead of the usual seasoning, other Asian ingredients lend its flavor to the noodle dish. It's a great version that while different, still reminds you that it's an Asian noodle that everyone can love.

In a bowl, season chicken with salt and pepper. Add egg white and cornstarch, and mix until well coated. Set aside.
