Easy Shredded Chicken

I’ve heard about how easy it is to shred chicken using a mixer but I hadn’t really considered trying it…until today!

I won an awesome KitchenAid mixer for a recipe submission into the Quaker Creations sweepstakes and thought I’d break the mixer in this weekend! I did…it shredded 4lbs of chicken so fast, I’ll never shred chicken by hand again!

All of this shredded chicken will be seasoned to make a few different meals this week…I’m seeing chicken tacos in my future!

Now I’m moving on to mixing up some baked goods!
