Perfectly Shredded Chicken in KitchenAid Mixer!


I dunno about you guys, but I’m always looking for easier ways to do things in the kitchen. I HATED shredding chicken; my hands hurt every time I shredded with forks, and it took forever! Then I read somewhere that you can shred your chicken in the KitchenAid mixer, and my life changed! In 30 seconds, you can have amazing, perfectly shredded chicken!

The first thing you do is place your hot, cooked chicken in the mixing bowl. I always cook my chicken breasts in the slow cooker; I’m all about easy! Attach the paddle attachment and turn the mixer on the lowest setting.
