Occasionally when preparing a dish it will call for shredded chicken. Now, this generally isn’t an issue if you’re making chicken salad or another cold dish, because you can wait until it cools before shredding. However, if you are preparing a hot dish and need the chicken to remain hot while you’re shredding it, here’s how to shred chicken fast, in under 2 minutes!
How to Shred Chicken Fast
In less than 2 minutes you will have perfectly shredded (still hot!) chicken to use in your favorite recipe, such as shredded chicken tacos!
This trick works well with roasted or grilled pork butts as well!
Once the butt is done cooking, cut it into manageable sized chunks and place it in the mixer. Lock the head of the mixer in place, secure the splatter shield and turn the mixer on the lowest setting. The paddle works great to quickly shred the meat.
