Pancit Molo (Filipino Wanton Soup) Recipe!!!

Pancit Molo (Filipino Wanton Soup) Recipe!!!

19-IMG_2480-copyPancit Molo is a Filipino soup dish that makes you wonder why it’s called pancit.   Pancit refers to noodle dishes, and this dish doesn’t have noodles at all.  It uses wonton, soimai or molo wrappers. Not to mention most of the pancit recipes are dry while this pancit molo is a soup.

Pancit Molo is a soup dish composed of a mixture of ground pork wrapped in wonton wrappers, shredded chicken meat, and shrimps. This dish is a  well known Filipino dish that resembles the Chinese dish called wanton soup but the finest ingredients and flavor makes this dish stand out.

Today I will give you my version of this dish, I’m sure you will love it.

For the Wontons:

In a bowl, combine ground pork, water chestnuts, green onions, soy sauce, carrots, garlic, salt and pepper. Gently stir until well-distributed.

Separate wrappers into individual sheets. Spoon a heaping tablespoonful of meat mixture on middle of wrapper and then gather sides to form a cup around mixture.

Rellenong Manok (Filipino Stuffed Chicken) Recipe!!!

Rellenong Manok (Filipino Stuffed Chicken) Recipe!!!

rellenong manok

Rellenong Manok is a festive Filipino  dish which is basically a roasted stuffed boneless chicken. Yes it’s boneless, but only in the cavity, wings and legs still have bones intact. 

The name Rellenong Manok iterally means “Stuffed Chicken”.  “Relleno” is the Spanish word meaning filled or stuffed; and “Manok” is the Tagalog word for chicken.  So for this festive dish the body of the bird is  painstakingly de-boned and only the wings and legs remain intact.  Because of the stuffing the chicken retains it’s shape when done, giving it a very nice presentation at any fiesta table.

The chicken is de-boned by cutting the breast side, removing the bones and sewing them back together.  Another way would be by removing the bones by hands carefully from the cavity without cutting the chicken. Cooking this dish is best suited for special occasions because the procedure involved is a little tedious. De-boning the chicken requires some skill and patience.  Stuffing it with the meat mixture is easy enough but, you have to insure that the chicken is well sewn so the contents won’t spill.

This is my version of Rellenong Manok (Stuffed Chicken) Filipino Recipe.

Have fun.

Pancit Palabok is a Filipino noodle dish or snack with a Chinese origin. It is often served for meriendas or snacks.

The word Pancit is derived from the Chinese term “pian i sit” which means  convenient food.  The Tagalog word Palabok means  “spiced” referring to the orange color of the dish which it gets from annato seeds.  It has a toppings of  fried garlic, chopped green onions, cut wedges of hard-boiled eggs, cubed tokwa (beancurd or tofu), pork and cooked prawns, flaked tinapa (smoke fish), pieces of chicharon (pork crackling or rind), and a little squeeze of calamansi (lemon juice) all over.
