AFF Indonesia - Mi Kocok Medan

I know I know.... this is my third noodle dish for AFF Indonesia :P
Ok ok.... promise the next one won't be noodle dish anymore LOL
But this noodle is too good not to try. Originally from Medan, North Sumatra, this is one famous dish anyone must try whenever visiting the city
"Kocok" is whisk in English. People said the noodle has the name from the way you eat it. You have to "kocok" the noodle, soup and the garnish together :)
There are a few different version for this mi kocok from different parts of Indonesia. But so far, I like the one from Medan the most :)

Recipe is from HERE

(modified to my preference)

500g fresh egg noodles, prepare as instructed
100g chicken breast
