Step 1 Cook the chicken breast
Make deep slits on the chicken breast. Marinate it with crushed garlic cloves, olive oil, black pepper powder, salt and soy sauce, and keep it aside for 30 minutes. Cook it until it is tender. Keep the leftover juices for later usage. When the chicken breast has cooled down, shred it into long thin strips.
