Want to make the best shredded chicken?
Here’s how to make shredded chicken (makes 4 servings):
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
16 oz chicken breast
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (or enough to cover chicken)
Place chicken in pan with broth, seasoning and olive oil.
Bring to boil and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Cover and leave heat on low.
Continue to cook for another 45-75 minutes or until chicken shreds when you use a fork.
To shred chicken, it’s easiest while warm/ Use two forks to pull the chicken apart.
