      This recipe is nicely structured for some classic shredded chicken. I found I had to doctor it up a bit to satiate my taste buds. I simmered the chicken for an hour and a half. I also kept in some of the boiled base for flavor and added some cottage cheese to keep in the juice. Thanks for the recipe.

      Tasty and easy! I'm not sure that the boiling part infused a whole bunch of flavor, it just seemed a little wasteful to me, I will probably just use water next time. Also, it was drier than I expected so I added more salsa. I liked it and it is very versatile and easy to make!
