Step 1

1. In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add chicken stock and chicken thighs and breast. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes.

2. Remove chicken from pan; let stand for 10 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, remove chicken from bones and cut meat into bite-sized pieces. Discard bones – save to make chicken stock later. (See How to Make Your Own Chicken Stock)
