  • 1 pound skinless chicken pieces preferably breasts
  • 3 to 4 cups water as needed
  • 2 teaspoons of your choice of spices and herbs


  • Add about water into a cooking pot. Bring to a boil and turn down heat until the liquid starts to simmer gently.
  • Place the chicken pieces in the pan without overcrowding them. Make sure they are fully covered in your cooking liquid. Add spices and herbs.
  • Cover partially with a lid and cook until the meat is soft and loses its pink color. If the chicken is still oozing blood, cook further until done. Serve with the broth.
