Ride it. That'll soften up the gunk.
But do spray some chain lube on it every few hundred miles. The orings take care of the links, but they don't do anything for the rollers and sprocket interface.

+1.

I find Maxima chain wax is pretty good for o-ring chains.  Spray a bunch on, then wipe to clean the chain.  Then spray a little more on and wipe off the excess.  Let it dry before you ride.  This keeps the chain in good shape but minimizes fling off.
