Tips & Tricks: Shredded Chicken


Make the perfect shredded chicken in your Kitchen Aid mixer. Shredding chicken for BBQ sandwiches or other recipes can be really tiresome and time consuming. You’ll want the chicken to be hot to make sure it doesn’t harm the mixer. Use the paddle attachment for the perfect texture and you’ll have shredded chicken in just seconds. I’m positive you can also do this with pork and beef roasts.

  1. So do you first boil the chicken to cook it and then put it straight into the mixer as full breasts or tenders? Or how big/small do thep pieces need to be? Thanks!

  2. I like to roast my whole chicken so it doesn’t lose it’s flavor, but you can boil if you would like. Once roasted skin and deboned the chicken. Place all the meat in mixer with the paddle attachment, turn on, and whoa la!
