How To: Perfectly Shred Chicken w/ a Stand Mixer
1. Cook multiple chicken breasts until fully cooked. I tend to buy a ton of chicken breasts when they go on sale, and cook them in the crock pot. That way they are ready to shred when I get home from work, and I have homemade chicken broth that I can use as well!
2. While the chicken is still very warm, place the breasts in your Kitchen-aid mixer and put on the paddle attachment. Lock the mixer in place (otherwise it can get a little rocky) and turn on low. It won't look like it is doing much at first, but give it a minute. It will shred your chicken perfectly. This shredded chicken can be frozen in cup-increments for easy additions to casseroles, soups, quesadillas, chicken salad, etc.
