How to Shred Chicken in Minutes!

In my family chicken is on the menu almost every single night! I would say that 80% of my recipes are chicken based. Some call for baked chicken, some fried and other recipes call for shredded chicken. 

Now I don’t know about you but shredding chicken is not something I enjoy doing. In fact I sometimes avoid recipes because it calls for shredded chicken. 

Standing in the kitchen shredding chicken for what feels like hours just isn’t something I enjoy or have or have the time to do!

Guess what??

Today I’m going to tell you how to shred chicken in minutes!

You no longer have to shred chicken

Yes, you heard that correctly! You will never have to shred chicken by hand again!

Take your warm chicken breasts and throw them in your Kitchen-Aid mixer! 

I am not kidding when I tell you that you will get perfectly shredded chicken in minutes. I put six chicken breasts in my mixer and within 2 minutes I had perfectly shredded chicken.
