How to Shred Chicken in Your Stand Mixer {Kitchen Tip Tuesday}

Did you know you could shred chicken with your stand mixer, oh yes, you can.  I used to dread shredding chicken, and it would take me forever to shred the chicken with two forks. Not anymore. 


Simply bake or boil your chicken breasts. While they’re still warm, put them in your stand mixer with your flat beater attachment.


Turn the mixer on at about a 2 speed for 30 seconds to a minute. Keep an eye on it because it shreds quickly! You now have perfectly shredded chicken ready for any recipe without the mess or burned fingers.
