Yield: Yields 5 to 6 cups chicken and about 1-1/2 cups broth
Making a large batch of pulled chicken on the weekend is a genius way to have plenty of options for quick weeknight meals. Seasoned with garlic, bay, and paprika, this versatile chicken is delicious in a number of dishes, from sandwiches to lettuce wraps. You can shred it as soon as it cools and refrigerate it for up to four days so that it’s ready to go for weeknight meals; or you can refrigerate whole pieces and shred them as you need them, which keeps the meat a little juicier.

Any good uses for the "saved " broth ??
Made this again today because it is rockin hot outside. I wanted to add a comment that 2 1/2 pounds of boneless chicken breasts is about 5 boneless chicken breasts.
