Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 3-4 Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs
- 1/8 tsp Salt for boiling
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1/8 tsp Salt for seasoning
- 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
- 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil can replace with avocado oil if preferred
- 2 Stalks Green Onion
Gather all the ingredients.
In large stove top pot, add enough water to cover chicken thighs and bring to a boil.
Once the water boils, sprinkle 1/8 tsp salt into stove top pot and add chicken. Reduce heat to medium and cover stove top pot 7/8 of the way to expose a little room for evaporation. Cook for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut green onion into thin slices.
Grind garlic with a grinder or a garlic press.
Once 15 minutes has passed, remove chicken and place onto a cutting board. Gently sweep the knife/fork along with the grain of the meat. The chicken should pull apart and form shreds.
In a large mixing bowl, add chicken, garlic, a sprinkle of salt and pepper and mix well. After mixing well, transfer to a serving plate and add green onions on top.
In a cast iron pan, heat up the vegetable oil until it lightly smokes (please note that cast iron pan & handle gets VERY hot. So please wear mitts if you need to handle the pan). Pour hot oil onto chicken (should sizzle if hot enough) and enjoy immediately.
