Chicken & Prawn Pad Thai Recipe

You may or may not have read my previous travel posts about our trip to Thailand, but it will remain one of my favourite trips to date! The food being a major highlight and Pad Thai being a staple part of our holiday diet. Well, if it ain’t broke?

Traditionally also cooked with Tofu, I chose not to include it in this recipe, but if you’re feeling it – add it! I have used a few more common store cupboard swaps to make the sauce, as some Asian ingredients can be difficult to track down! Give it a go!

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • Sesame Oil/ Frylight
  • 1 Chicken Breast, thinly sliced
  • 125g Frozen Cooked King Prawns (defrost thoroughly!)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Flat Rice Noodle Nests
  • 1 Carrot, julienne
  • 1 White Onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Handfuls of Bean Sprouts
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, peeled and minced


  • 2 tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Oyster Sauce 


  • 1 Spring Onion, finely sliced lengthways
  • 15g Peanuts, finely chopped
  • 0.5 Fresh Red Chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 Lime, wedges 



  • Place noodles in a large bowl, pour over plenty of boiling water. Soak for 5 mins, then drain quickly rinse under cold water. Don’t leave them sitting for more than 10 mins.
  • Mix sauce ingredients in small bowl.
  • Heat oil/ Frylight in a large pan over high heat. Add garlic and onion, cook for 30 secs.
  • Add chicken and cook for 1.5 mins until mostly cooked.
  • Push to one side of the pan, pour egg in on the other side. Scramble using the wooden spoon then mix into ingredients.
  • Add bean sprouts, prawns, noodles then Sauce.
  • Toss gently for about 1.5 mins until sauce is absorbed by the noodles.
  • Serve sprinkled with spring onions, peanuts and lime wedges on the side, with a sprinkle of chilli!


I would love to hear what you think of the recipe or if you give the recipe a go!
