Chicken - day before prep
Step 1
Add 3-4 cups of water into a pot large enough to boil the chicken. Add in the seasonings to the water. Stir and taste to ensure the water is seasoned to your liking. If not, add more seasoning. Add chicken to the pot and turn heat to medium and add in chicken. Boil for 30 - 40 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Set aside to cool. Once cool, remove skin and shred. Place in a covered container and store in the refrigerator for later.
