My aunt was visiting a few months ago and I pulled out my Kitchen Aid mixer to make some dinner rolls. She asked me if I knew the mixer was great for shredding cooked chicken. To be honest, I had never thought of this. The next time I needed to shred a couple of chicken breasts I gave it a try.
I have to agree, it works great. I've tried both the mixing paddle and the dough hook and both do the job.
