1. Follow the boiled chicken recipe (Recipe ID: 580163). It doesn't have to be chicken, it can be ham or another meat.
2. Add the ingredients marked with ▲ to a frying pan and heat on low. Stir-fry until fragrant. Add the Shaoxing wine and turn the heat up to medium. Stir-fry for a little longer before adding the ingredients marked with ○ and bringing to a boil. Once boiled, turn off the heat, transfer everything to a container and chill well in the refrigerator.
3. Once the mixture from Step 2 has cooled, add the ingredients marked with ■ and mix. This completes the salt sauce.
4. Boil the noodles according to the instructions written on the packet and chill in cold water. Drain well.
5. Add the noodles to a plate, along with the boiled chicken and your choice of vegetables and sides. Pour over the salty sauce to complete! If you like, try adding a bit of yuzu pepper paste or ra-yu to spice it up.
