Maybe you’ve discovered that chicken shreds easiest when still hot, but this can create a problem when you’re trying to shred it.

But, I am here to put an end to all that nonsense. I shredded these five chicken breasts in 17 seconds, but who’s counting.

This is painfully easy, it really is.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • cooked chicken breasts
  • a mixer…I have this Kitchen Aid. It’s a work horse, and I’d be LOST without it! Just click on it for details


So, boil, bake, grill, or throw your chicken in your Instant Pot (my favorite method).

While it is still hot, throw it in your mixer.

Turn it on high with the regular paddle type attachment and run it on medium speed.

Voila, shredded chicken breasts in a flash!

See, easy, huh?
