The Easiest Way to Shred Chicken

No more messy hands or lots of time using 2 forks this quick and easy way is hands down the best.

I can’t wait to show you this trick! This is the easiest way to shred chicken and have it be consistent. The bonus is that you can keep your hands clean! I very often use shredded chicken in my recipes. I used to use 2 forks, one would hold the breast while the other pulled. This takes a long time when you are doing a lot.   Now I can shred 3 chicken breasts in 1 minute flat!

You will not believe how simple this is. I will never EVER shred chicken with 2 forks again! Take a look at how fine the shred is, it would take forever to get that with 2 forks!

    Wow Kelley! Thanks to you, I'll put my forks away!! Shredding chicken won't be time consuming anymore–and I'll remember the two-piece limit. By the way–love your pimped out mixer!!

    Interesting idea.. I love doing mine with the crockpot! If you put the breasts with a little bit of liquid (I'll use chicken stock); after 4-5 hours on high, it's so simple to shred!
