Shredding Chicken at home can help you save time and money. By using your Kitchenaid stand mixer you can shred the chicken in half the time then by pulling it off with a fork, as you know this can take a bit of time. With the Kitchenaid and the normal beater attachment, I shredded a pound of cooked chicken breast straight from the slow cooker in under 30 seconds.
How to Shred Chicken in 3 Easy Steps
1. Take your meat straight from cooking and toss it in the mixing bowl.
2. Make sure the beater attachment is in place.
3. Raise the bowl and hit a low power setting for about 30 seconds.
You can then store it in an airtight container in the fridge and make meals with it for the week or you can divide it up and freeze it. When you want some shredded chicken, you can take it out of the freezer and thaw it out to use. Chicken is always on sale so be sure to stock up at the right price.
This will save you money by doing it yourself rather than paying $7-$8 at the Deli or $4 a small can on the shelves.
