Boil chicken in water or sodium free chicken broth. When done take a fork and knife and you can shred it apart. Store in an airtight container and it will last for days. The chicken stays tender and can be used in tons of ways for a great lean protein. I use this on salads and to to make quick meals when I'm low on time.

Every time that we make the 150 mile round trip to ElPaso, we stop at a store and get a rotisserie chicken for dinner. After we finish the chicken, the carcass, and the removed skin go into a soup kettle, and the meat is boiled off the bones. We strain the bones, and the next morning, we cook some Fideo noodles in the REAL chicken broth, MMMMM GOOD!!! Brie
Buy a steamer, it cuts down your cooking time, it's easy, healthy, and delicious. The best kind are the metal inserts that fit into a large "boiling" pan. I keep frozen chicken, fish, and freeze fresh veggies. When I get hungry, I just boil a little water and steam food right out of the freezer.
