Of course, when boiling chicken, you’ll get unwanted residues, so just remove them with a slotted spoon.

Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, and simmer for a few more minutes on medium heat!

Remove the cooked chicken from the pot, and put aside. Save the broth!!

In a medium saucepan, heat oil for a few moments. Add the chicken pieces and sautée the chicken until they get crispy and have a nice light golden colour at the end! Very yummy! I promise!
