Simple Shredded Chicken
Health Highlights
I like to make this as a batch and then make tacos, add it to soup & salads or cook it up with eggs for breakfast.


454 gm Chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
2 tsp Oregano, dried
2 tsp Granulated garlic
2 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Coriander seed (cilantro) (Crushed)
1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Salt


Place the chicken in a sauce pan and add spices. 

You can add more spice, if you wish.  My measurements are guesses.

Cover with water, by about 1/4  inch and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer.  As the water reduces, use forks to shred off chicken a little at a time.

Your chicken is done when the water is nearly done and all the chicken is shredded.  I like to simmer it down until there's a lot of moisture, but not water.
