This tip comes from the kitchen of Simply Healthy Family.
Attach paddle/flat beater to KitchenAid stand mixer. Place WARM/HOT chicken in mixer bowl. (Refrigerated chicken is harder and may harm your mixer.)
Look at that steam!
The last time I shredded chicken this way I put in 4 small-medium breasts (shown in photo above) at speed 4, and my mixer started to shake a bit and make an odd noise. I had to lower it to speed 2 to finish shredding the chicken. I have tried this trick before and had no problems, though I can’t remember how many pieces of chicken I put in the bowl, so I’d recommend sticking with three medium-sized pieces at a time.
