Shredded Chicken

So any tip that can help me in the kitchen is a plus. I remember the first time I tried shredding chicken with a fork... ha ha. it was not a pretty sight. So thankfully I'm here today with Tuesdays tip.
How Jamie shreds her chicken.
*First I boil my chicken and when it is ready to be shredded I throw it in my kitchen-aid mixer with the paddle attachment on and let a rip.



*I had it on the lowest speed then turned it up one notch.


Here she is all perfectly shredded for me and I didn't even need a fork! It took about 1 min!


Saying that I love chicken salad would be an understatement. Especially if it came from a local bakery here in Utah called kneaders. Here is my version of their salad. Hope you enjoy!

Mix vinegar, salt, pepper, mayonnaise and sour cream together. Mix celery, green onion and chicken in separate bowl. Mix all ingredients together. Let set overnight or for a few hours for the best flavor. Serve on buns or rolls.
