Repurposing COCSTO's Roasted Chicken

Here is how I repurpose Costco's Roasted Chicken.   It's cheap, It's cooked, but I don't like its taste - too salty, and it's kind of stinky.
Whole fresh chicken is very good, but sometimes, I just don't have the time to go through the whole regiment of cleaning the sink, chicken, utensils, and you have a better choice chicken, etc.   It's actually no more or less time than what I am doing it here, but this is how I repurpose the Costco's roasted chicken.
So, first, get a large pot that would hold the chicken plus water.   Fill the pot with fresh clean water.   Set aside on the stove.
Take the roasted chicken out of the COSTCO chicken package and remove the truss thread/rubber band; chop off the tail, if you would like.   Then, place the chicken in a large clean bowl.  Run the Filtered tap water to rinse the chicken.
Add the chicken into the pot.  Bring the water to a boil.
In the meantime to bring the water to boil, fill the large clean bowl with fresh Filtered water.  Set aside.
Then, let the boiling water to boil for a couple of minutes, and then, dump the water that came to boil with the chicken - dump  just the water.
Fill the pot with the fresh Filtered water.  Bring it to boil.
Then, immediately place a lid and bring the heat to simmer (no bubbling of water).
Cook for 10 minutes.
Without opening the lid, Turn Off the heat.
When the pot is warm to the touch.
Open the lid, remove the chicken to a clean cutting board.
Remove the skins.  Remove the meat.  Cut into portion size that you will using it for.  Vacuum seal the meat for storage, for example.
Use as needed.
