How to Shred Chicken in One Minute

If you love using shredded chicken in your cooking, then this tip will come in handy!

Drum roll please…

Take your cooked, hot chicken breasts and cut them in half. Add the chicken to your KitchenAid Mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.

Start your mixer and slowly increase to about an 8. Let that go for 1 to 2 minutes or until the chicken is completely shredded.

It will look like this:

I have been told that this only works with hot, cooked chicken. So please mind yourself and do that 🙂 Or don’t and report the results back here in the comments for the world to know!
