I can’t wait to tell you about this awesome trick I recently discovered! This is the absolute, without a doubt, easiest way to shred chicken and have it be consistent. An added bonus? You keep your hands clean and cramp free! I use shredded chicken in my recipes. A lot. I used to have to use 2 forks, one to hold the breast while the other one pulled. This takes a long time, especially if you’re doing more than one breast. I used to positively dread the task, and would put it off until the last minute. Now I can shred up to 3 chicken breasts in under 1 minute! Maybe I’ll time myself next time. I bet I can even do it in under 30 seconds!
How To Shred Chicken…The Easy Way!
1. Cook your chicken breats however you normally would whether it be poached, oven roasted, or even in the crockpot. When the chicken is fully cooked, place up to 3 breasts in the bowl of your stand mixer. Don’t attempt to do more than 3 at a time. Trust me on this one, I had to learn it the hard way. Chicken chunks flew everywhere. It wasn’t pretty.
2. Start off slow and increase the speed, as needed, to shred your chicken more. In a snap you will have this! Perfectly shredded chicken with no mess, and no hand cramps. I couldn’t believe how simple this was. I will never EVER shred chicken with 2 forks again! Take a look at how fine the shred is, it would take forever to get that with 2 forks!
3. Proceed with your recipe of choice and use your shredded chicken however the meal requires.
Boss status…achieved! You’ve owned that chicken & your kitchen.
