You should cool food down at least to room temp before freezing.The faster you cool cooked food the less likely bacteria will have to form on it. Putting it in an ice bath is the correct way to cool food before refrigerating or freezing it.

You should boil a chicken an hour to an hour and a half in a mild boil. Do not boil it in a hard, rolling boil. it should be tender and allow it to cool off before handling.

It depends on how you intend to use the chicken. If you are going to serve it at a meal, you would want to serve it hot, so just a few minutes of cooling would be enough. If you plan to shred or pull it by hand, you should allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes. This is a great tip for cooling chicken: If you allow the chicken to cool in the water (broth) it was cooked in, the chicken will have a much better flavor than if you remove it from the broth and allow it to cool.

depends on the seed. some seeds actually like being in the fridge for a bit before germinating but i forgot the name of the phenomena most seeds should be stored in cool dry conditions. 16 degrees celcius with a dehumidifier
