Instructions for a perfect Chicken and prawn pad Thai

1. Start by soaking the rice noodles in warm water for about 10 minutes or until they become soft. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and prawns, cooking for about 5-7 minutes or until they’re cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
