In a small bowl combine tamarind, fish sauce, sugar, chili flakes and set aside.

Heat your wok to high (add oil to wok before it gets to temp). Cut up your chicken and mince shallot and garlic together. When wok is heated add your chicken, shallot and garlic and cook until they start to brown.

Drain noodles and add to the wok with chicken, garlic and shallot. Add the sauce to the wok and stir until incorporated. Move noodles to one side of wok, add the egg and scramble on the clear spot, then mix into noodles. Turn off heat to the wok and add bean sprouts.
