I used to steer clear of recipes that called for shredded chicken – especially a lot of shredded chicken. Using two forks to pull apart 6 chicken breasts can be incredibly time-consuming.
If you are making a crockpot recipe, shouldn’t the entire recipe be easy?
To easily shred chicken, place the hot boneless pieces into a stand mixer with the regular flat beater attachment. Turn on the mixer to a low setting until the meat has pulled apart (be careful to not over-shred the chicken). It’s as easy as that!
