Onion - 1/2

Method:


Take Chicken Breast in a pan and fill it with water with 1 inch above it to cover.Then put it in stove and bring it to one rapid boil,then put the flame in lowest setting and cover and boil for 8 min.
then switch off flame and remove pan from heat and let that breast along with liquid covered rest for 10 min.
Then remove breast and shread it with fork.You can leave the breast in water and leave it in refrigerator to store ,storing it in water keeps it moist.
