Are you sick of spending so much time shredding chicken with 2 forks? Why not spend that time doing other things that mean more to you?

Here is a super simple way to shred chicken in under 30 seconds with your KitchenAid Mixer.  I actually like to put my chicken in the crockpot to make this even easier!  You can truly set this and forget about it, and in 30 seconds have chicken for so many recipes!

If you are looking for some fresh recipes ideas, check out E-Meals (use coupon code DINNER15 – for 15% off!), a weekly meal planning service which sends you fabulous meal plans weekly.  You can choose from Gluten-Free plans, Slow Cooker Plans, Clean Eats plans and more! I get the Gluten-free meal plan from Walmart every week, it comes with a shopping, and weekly menu. The prices are already figured out, so I know that I normally will spend on average of $75 and $100 for a weeks worth of meals.

Here are the steps you need to follow to get your 30 second Shredded Chicken:



















1.) Place Chicken in Crockpot. I use 1 – 1/2 lbs of fresh chicken in a crockpot with 1/2 cup of water.  Cook for 4 hours on low or until cooked.  You can use more chicken and make a big batch for burritos, soups, pasta and more!  The possibilities are endless!

2.)  Once your chicken is cooked through, place it in the bowl of the KitchenAid Mixer.

3.) Put on your Paddle Attachment.

4.) Make sure you lock the KitchenAid down, because this is a very heavy job for it.

5.) Turn your Kitchen Aid on and in 30 seconds you have perfectly Shredded Chicken. Medium Speed seems to be the best for this.

6.) You can either freeze this chicken as is to easily add to a recipe. Or you can make a recipe that calls for shredded chicken like this Mexican Corn Chowder or Buffalo Chicken Tacquitos.

There are so many ways to use this Shredded chicken, and who knew that a KitchenAid mixer could be SO Useful!

Let me know how you plan to use your 30 second Shredded Chicken?  I am always looking for new recipes!
