Tips and Tricks:

1. You can also use a whole chicken, chicken breasts or even rotisserie chicken. (See post for more details).
2. If you choose to use chicken breast, I suggest either cutting them into bite-sized cubes, or letting them cook whole. If you choose to cook them whole, remove and shred the chicken with two forks and add back into the pot.
