This is one of those crazy easy kitchen tips that has been circulating around Pinterest for ages, but in case you haven’t chanced upon it, I’m going to show you the easiest way to shred chicken. This is super hands off for the most part and takes about 1 minute of actual work.
Grab your chicken breasts and put them in a pot of water and let them cook (boiled meat is up there with the grossest sounding things ever, but it’s the easiest and quickest way to make shredded chicken, in my opinion). So boil the chicken until it is cooked through, I use a meat thermometer to check. Then toss them into a stand mixer bowl.
Using the flat beater attachment, mix the chicken up and it will immediately start shredding. I run mine for around 30 seconds to a minute, until the chicken is shredded nicely. That’s my easy tip! Sometimes the simplest things are the best!
