Notes

How to Shred Chicken: heat a medium size pan over medium heat. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Add the chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes then turn to cook the other side. Pour about 2-3 cups of water into the pan, cover with a lid and allow to cook for about 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove and chicken will easily shred.
