Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken in a 12 in skillet, add water and seasonings, and cook on high heat until water starts to boil and absorb into the chicken.
  2. Turn heat down to med-low and work your chicken with a wooden spatula to break it up, until it all of the water is absorbed.
  3. The finished product should look like shredded chicken. You may have to add more water. The chicken WILL absorb it. It's pretty hard to drown.
