READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • In a large stock pot place the chicken and sprinkle with garlic salt. Add the water until its about 4 inches above the chicken. Wash the lime then cut it in half and add it to the pot. Bring water to a boil and continue until the chicken is cooked throughly. About 1-1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove the chicken and let it cool. Remove the limes and skim the broth to remove fat. Shred the chicken after it has cooled off and set aside.
  • To the broth add the chicken bouillon and let it simmer for a couple of minutes.
