DIRECTIONS

  • Place first four ingredients in a pot. Add just enough water to cover the chicken.
  • Bring to a slow boil, cover, lower heat to maintain a simmer and cook until done, about 20 - 25 minutes. If using a whole chicken; cook approximately 50 - 60 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from pot, let cool and shred. (I cool my chicken in the refrigerator to be safe) If using a whole chicken; remove meat from bones and shred. Reserve broth.
  • In a large pan, melt butter over low heat.

  • Sauté until soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Stir in shredded chicken and briefly sauté.
