Cover it and let it cook for approximately thirty to forty minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked through and soft.

Shred the Chicken Take the chicken out of the pot and, using two forks, shred it into pieces that are suitable for snacking. Throw away the discarded bones and skin, then add the shredded chicken back into the broth.
