How to make shredded chicken?

While there are a variety of different methods to cook chicken for shredding or dicing, poaching (gently cooking the chicken in water) is the one I’ve found to be the quickest and easiest, with the smallest amount of clean up. You don’t need any equipment other than a pot to make it. Lets see the step by step procedure:

Step One: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or thighs) in the bottom of a large kadai or pot, then add turmeric powder ,salt and water. Boil for 10 mins till the chicken is cooked.
