Bring broth to a boil in a sauté pan. Set chicken into broth with bay and oregano and onion. Return to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer.

Poach chicken in broth for 10 minutes. Remove chicken breasts to a bowl and shred with two forks. Add half a cup of cooking liquid and tomato paste, one teaspoon chilli powder, cumin and salt and work through the chicken using the forks.
