Today I am making a batch of chicken salad and decided to try out a tip I heard a while back…shredding chicken in your stand mixer. Let me tell you, this was hands down the fastest and easiest way to shred chicken! Before I always used my food processor but I am now a convert.
Simply place your fully cooked, warm chicken breasts into your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix at the slowest speed until all is shredded. I cut my chicken breasts up into smaller pieces but doubt that was necessary. I definitely think they need to be warm for this to work.
Hope you enjoy this method as much as me!
