  • Place the chicken and one cup of chicken stock in a medium pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until the chicken is tender, about 1 hour.
  • ransfer the chicken to a large plate and use 2 forks to shred the meat. Set aside.
  • While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce by blending one cup of chicken broth, honey, cilantro leaves, garlic, lime and scallions until smooth.
