Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:2min setting  ›  Ready in:32min 

  1. The 1st thing you have to do is soak tenga ng daga in a bowl of water. In a hot pan, put cooking oil. Brown the garlic then set aside. In the same pan, saute onion and achuete powder. When onion is already transparent, add the chicken. You may want to start seasoning it with soy sauce, fish sauce, and at the same time dissolve the chicken cube with it.
  2. Add the water and bring it to a boil. Meanwhile, soak the vermicelli in hot water then drain after 2-3 minutes. Cut into a desirable length. Drain the tenga ng daga then cut into an inch or so.
  3. If the water is already boiling, combine the vegetables and put in the pan with the chicken. Now, the next step is to put the cut vermicelli and tenga ng daga. Make sure to mix it well till slightly dry.
  4. Arrange the pancit sotanghon in a platter. Garnish it with toasted garlic and sliced eggs.


You can use some of the boiled chicken you have made if it's too much for the recipe. You can either use it for arroz caldo or chicken spread. Eat the pancit sotanghon as it is or you can have it with steamed rice.
