  • Place 5 to 6 pounds of chicken in a Dutch oven or crockpot.
  • In a bowl, mix together dry soup, black pepper and concentrated chicken soup base. Pour soup base mixture over chicken. Add water to pan to cover half of the chicken. Omit water, if using a crockpot.
  • Oven bake a minimum of 4 hours, or in a crock pot, set temperature on high for 20 minutes, then cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Chicken is finished cooking when it pulls apart easily. Allow meat to cool, then shred.
