A Simple Way For Shredding Chicken
One of my favorite ways to eat chicken is having it shredded and putting it either in a salad or soup, or making lettuce wraps with it. It's easy, simple and perfect for just grabbing some chicken and putting it in a bag for when I'm on the go. But I HATE having to shred the chicken.
I can either do it by hand, which takes forever, or I can use two forks and try to shred it that way.
Both ways, take way too long and they don't shred the chicken very well.
Then my husband sent me a video of someone shredding chicken the fastest and most simplest way!
By using a hand mixer! LOL
OK, so maybe you already know this or maybe this is something you've seen before. But for me...this is so awesome and such a time saver!
Here's how to do it!
Cook your chicken.
If I'm going to shred the chicken, I will cook it in the Crockpot. I usually make about 4 pounds and cook 6-7 hours. If I feel like it, I will add seasoning.
Once cooked, place all the chicken in a bowl.
Next, take your hand mixer (doesn't have to be fancy. If you can see, my mixer is about 15 years old) and turn on low and start shredding the chicken. The chicken will get "stuck" in the mixers sometimes, but do not worry. Just keep going and eventually the chicken will break apart.
Continue doing this until all chicken is shredded to your liking.
And viola! You have shredded chicken that you can put on salads, in soups, lettuce wraps or just eat on it's own!
Hope you enjoy!
