Shredded chicken is so easy to make - just boil a whole chicken, allow to cool, and shred it with the help of two forks. And that flavor!
Whether you boil the chicken with just a bit of salt, or opt to add more spices - shredded chicken is a flavorful component that just gets better when paired with other flavorful ingredients.
I prefer to cook chicken in an instant pot - it's quick, and super easy - but cooking it stove top is also a great choice.
And whatever you do - don't throw away the water the chicken boiled in. That's the best kind of homemade chicken broth!
