Contis is your next Breakfast Spot

Breakfast is often regarded as the most important meal of the day. There’s at least one very good reason for that. It’s the first after several hours of no food intake through the night. Therefore, it provides the nourishment needed to recharge the body and prepare it for the demands of the new day. Aside from that, breakfast likewise gives other essential nutrients that help maintain good health.  But not everyone is getting the right breakfast. Some don’t even get any breakfast at all. The reasons may include lack of time to prepare, a limited menu at home, and a pantry that isn't well stocked for a variety of dishes.  Fortunately, there are excellent options to get the right breakfast and start the day optimally.

Miki Bihon Guisado

One of our menus for media noche includes a quite complicated recipe. Since I failed to bring home some of my ingredients here, I had to uncomplicate the menu and shopping for ingredients there was quite tasky because aside from braving the traffic, I won’t be able to complete at least half of the ingredients I had in mind. So I thought, why not uncomplicate my menu instead. So miki bihon came into my mind because it’s ingredients were readily available in the market.

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms Miki Pancit (round egg noodles)
  • 250 gms Good Life Bihon (cornstarch noodles)
  • Chicken liver, thinly sliced
  • Chicken breast, boiled
  • Shrimp (optional)
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1 onion, julienned
  • garlic, minced
  • snow peas
  • cabbage, sliced thinly
  • Parsley
  • Premium soy sauce/Kikkoman soy sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Good Life Sesame Oil
  • Chicken Broth Cubes
  • Olive oil/corn oil
  • Shallots

Directions:

  • Boil chicken in 4 cups water and add chicken broth or you may use your own spices. Sometimes I make my chicken stock by boiling the chicken with garlic, onion, salt, thyme, bay leaf and peppercorn. Bring to a boil and set aside chicken stock. Remove the chicken and shred the chicken meat. 
  • Saute garlic and onion until brown. Add chicken liver and the shredded chicken meat until slightly brown. Add soy sauce, pepper and chicken stock.
  • Toss in bihon and egg noodles until all the water is absorbed. Add carrots, cabbage and snow peas until cooked. You also have the option to blanch the vegetables prior to cooking the noodles to prevent it from getting overcooked or breaking into pieces.
  • Drizzle it with sesame oil for added flavor and sprinkle with shallots.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Note: I didn’t place exact amount of seasonings and the chicken because I only made half of 250gms noodles. But basically I only used approximately 100 gms of chicken liver as well as chicken breast.

Let me know if you tried this and share your thoughts.
