Now add the chicken piece and brown them till evenly colored. Now add salt and 6 cups of water.
Let it boil over high heat. Once it starts boiling lower the heat and let the liquid simmer for 50 mins with the lid on.
You should have about 5 cups of Yakhni. Once done, take it off the stove and let it rest for 20 mins. Check for salt, add more if needed.
Use a strainer to strain the liquid in to a bowl and take out the chicken and shred it in a serving bowl. Set aside.
Let the broth cool down till a layer of fat appears on the top of the bowl.
Take a spoon and slowly skim it off. Once done heat it before serving.
