Shredding chicken for some recipes sometimes is such a pain! I always wished there was a quick way to shred chicken. Sometimes it takes so much time to wait for it to cool enough so you don’t burn yourself, Or you have a TON so you sit pulling it apart forever. This happens often when you are batch cooking.
I have seen others use a stand mixer to shred their chicken before. And while I think this is a great idea and we have a stand mixer, it is not easily accessible and to just shred chicken it seemed a little silly to get it down just for that and have to wash it all out.
Quick Way to Shred Chicken in 30 Seconds
So I decided I was going to find a new and easier way to do with with much less clean up. I tried using 2 forks, still took a long time, I tried stirring with a spoon but nothing really happened. I realized they needed pressure and mixing at the same time to make it a quick way to shred chicken.
I thought what about my potato masher?
So I pulled it out and started mashing my boiled chicken while slightly stirring it around the bowl. 30 seconds later I had a perfectly shredded bowl of chicken! I didn’t even have to wait for it to cool!
Easy to do, easy to clean up! Perfect easy and quick way to shred chicken! The best part is that my 7 year old can easily do it now too so it makes it a great way to get the kids involved in cooking dinner!
