How to Shred Chicken Using a Stand Mixer
1. Poach (boil) your chicken breast(s) until cooked through.
2. Place cooked chicken in your stand mixer bowl (I have a Kitchen Aid) and attach the flat beater attachment.
3. Turn your mixer onto the low or medium setting and beat until shredded. (You may have to shred a couple of big chunks by hand, but the mixer pretty much does all the work for you.)
