I ran across this idea on Pinterest (shocking huh?) awhile ago and have been using this method for “perfect shredded chicken” ever since. This one definitely falls under the “why didn’t I think of that?” category. But hey, at least SOMEONE did! And now all of us can benefit from it!
So that’s why I’m posting it here, for those of you who haven’t yet been let in on the “secret”. I decided to make Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas for Sunday dinner and since it calls for shredded chicken, I just decided to snap a few pics while I was at it. I’m pretty sure the pictures speak for themselves. Just make sure you do this when the chicken is still warm/hot!
Update: a few people have asked for a few more details….so here they are. I used the paddle hook on my KitchenAid…and I did it on a low setting for a couple of minutes. Start slow and speed up as it becomes more shredded.
