There are so many recipes that call for shredded chicken when I am cooking.
I would rather whine and complain than sit and shred chicken.
It is just time consuming and messy.
But enter this amazing trick found on Pinterest and I will shred chicken any day for you guys!
As soon as your chicken (as long as it is boneless) is done cooking: baking, boiling, or even slow cooking,
Pop it in your stand mixer bowl.
Using the paddle (flat beater) attachment, mix the chicken on medium to high speed for 30 seconds to 1 minute until finely shredded.
Seriously, life changing!
The texture is perfect and you have some control over how thinly it shreds by adjusting the mixing speed and time.
Now go and change your chicken shredding lives!
