Air-chilled chicken has less moisture than chicken conventionally cooled in water during processing. Though more expensive by weight, air-chilled chicken shrinks less during cooking and has superior flavour and texture.

In large bowl, soak noodles in warm water for 20 minutes; drain and set aside.
