Sweet Chili Prawns with Stir-fried Noodles

Remember that big batch of Sweet Chili Sauce I made last week? Well this is what I was inspired to make for dinner with it. This is a super easy weeknight meal, that comes together in a flash with the help of some frozen prawns. I keep a bag of these in my freezer for nights when I forget to plan ahead for dinner, as they defrost quickly. You could also swap in some chicken for a more family friendly meal.
