@AntoniaJames: Sorry for the delay in answering, I just now logged on. I used about 5 cups of stock for the pancit, using 8 ounces of rice sticks. Keep in mind that it is all a matter of personal preference, if you like your pancit drier, then reduce the stock before adding the noodles. I like mine a bit wet.

Oh my, this certainly looks good. How much stock do you put in the wok? I don't see any amounts of water specified, and the amount you have after straining seems like it could vary a lot both by the size of the pot, and how much evaporates during the simmering of the chicken and then the shrimp shells. Thank you so much. I plan to make this soon! ;o)
