In a skillet, sauté garlic and onion in canola oil. Add carrot strips, shredded cabbage, and sliced red bell pepper. Stir-fry for about 3 minutes. Add the flaked chicken and season with 1 tsp. lite soy sauce and 1 tsp. patis. Stir-fry all for additional 2 minutes. Remove chicken and veggie mixture and set aside.
To the skillet, add 1½ c of chicken broth. Add the rice sticks/noodles and cook over low heat for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring. Add three-fourths of the chicken and veggie mixture, reserving one-fourth for the garnish.
If the mixture dries up, add more of the remaining chicken broth (a little at a time). Add 2 tbsp of lite soy sauce and 1 tbsp of patis. Continue stirring the mixture.
Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish the top with the remaining chicken and veggie mixture, sliced boiled eggs and lemon slices. Serves 12. Visit your local Asian grocery stores for ingredients.
