Good food always tastes better when it is made by someone else, but I may have to give this one a whirl. :)

What's your take on cooking chicken breasts - Bring to a boil quickly, or simmer slowly? Mine always tastes rubbery.

I cooked mine in a covered glass dish in the microwave this time and it was perfect for the soup. Less mess and much faster.. it shredded fine too.
