With great ingredients comes great recipes! Shredded chicken is one such ingredient because it’s so versatile. The sky really is the limit when it comes to this protein. It’s so easy to make because all you really need to do is boil chicken be it boneless or bone-in and pull the cooked meat into small bite-sized pieces. Once that’s done, you can flavour it and use it in numerous ways.

Shredded chicken, also called pulled chicken, can be and is used in appetisers and mains. If you are preparing a shredded chicken recipe, the best chicken to use is the chicken breast. Breasts of the chicken are naturally softer, making shredding easier. For this method, there is no need for bones or skin. 

How to Shred Chicken? 

Once the chicken is cooked properly, it is time for some chicken shredding. There are two ways to shred the chicken. But before that, transfer the chicken into a clean bowl and let it rest for a while. Chicken shredding becomes easier when the chicken is warm, as compared to cold meat. You can use a stand mixer or a food processor to shred chicken. 

This process is straightforward and fast. However, if you do not own a stand mixer, go for the two forks technique. In this technique, you must place the cooked chicken on a cutting board or a plate. By using two forks, pull the chicken meat apart and start shredding. Repeat this process with each breast. You can also use your hands to separate the meat.
