Cover and cook on LOW 5 to 6 hours or until meat easily pulls from bone. Remove meat from bones; discard skin and bones. Shred meat. Pour cooking liquid through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a measuring cup; discard solids. Let cooking liquid stand 10 minutes. Skim fat, and reserve 1/3 cup cooking liquid. Toss remaining cooking liquid with chicken.
