Gently simmered with onion and garlic, this chicken becomes moist and tender as it absorbs the subtly flavored broth.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken, breast side down, onion, garlic, and salt in a large pot. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes. Remove chicken from pot, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Let chicken stand until cool enough to handle. Shred meat, and mix with reserved cooking liquid.


Cook's Notes
