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.
