Shredded Chicken Taco Filling

This can be done on the stove faster! Use a second can of broth and boil the chicken in the 2 cans of broth until cooked, about 25 minutes. Then remove all but about 1 cup of broth, add the taco seasoning and shred the chicken. Add the chilies and let simmer on low heat covered for 15+ minutes.
