I have been doing this for years, its a lot easier than using 2 forks or your hands, so give this a try next time you need shredded chicken.
-Place boneless, skinless chicken breast(can do 1 or many) in pot, cover in water, season with salt and pepper. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce temp to low boil, and boil15-17 minutes.
-Remove chicken from pot and place in large bowl or stand mixer. Over medium speed beat chicken until desired thinness is reached.
-Enjoy! in your favorite recipes as needed.
