By no means am I a chef or even anything close to that! However, thanks to Pinterest I have found the easiest way to shred chicken. I'm not going to lie sometimes the clean-up ALMOST isn't worth the hassle, but I assure you it is.
I use shredded chicken for all sorts of recipes. Some of my favorites are chicken spaghetti, soups, flautas, burritos, burrito bowls - really anything! One thing I really don't like when making a recipe with chicken in it is a huge chunk of bird stuck in the middle of my meal (too graphic, sorry!) Anywho, this is a perfect solution.
You can have the chicken shredded in larger chunks if you want or you can shred it super thin.
Normally I boil my chicken for about 20 minutes until the middle is no longer pink. Then you just throw the whole chicken breasts into your KitchenAid with the paddle attachment and mix on low to desired consistency.
TADAAA! Not rocket-science or anything but a nice little tip. Can also ensure your husband that you REALLY ARE using that expensive kitchen appliance that you just HAD TO HAVE. Win-win for everyone!
