  3. Reduce heat to low, cover & simmer for a further 5-7 minutes
  4. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes
  5. Remove chicken from water
  6. While chicken is still warm place in KitchenAid mixer (or any mixer), shred chicken on medium high speed until shredded to your liking. Alternatively shred breast with a fork.
