A fabulous back pocket dinner recipe for those really busy days! The sauce is extra delicious because it's made in the same pot as the chicken!

  • 1.2 lb chicken breast , boneless and skinless

  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. The chicken may not be totally covered by liquid (once butter melts) which is fine.
  2. Once butter is melted, adjust heat so the liquid is simmering. Cook for 50 minutes, turning once, or until chicken can be easily shredded. The sauce should be thickened but if it's too watery, then remove the chicken and simmer until it reduces.
  3. Shred chicken with 2 forks (I do this in the saucepan). Serve!
