A lot of people have been using their extra time at home in the kitchen and this had led to many viral food trends. Better yet, people are posting their discoveries through videos on TikTok. So far we’ve seen whipped coffee, White Claw slushies, pancake cereal, and so much more! But the latest thing to go viral on Tik Tok is this genius food hack that shows you how to shred chicken in just a few seconds. Get ready to have shredded chicken sammies all summer long because once you try this hack you’ll never look back!

Sure you can shred chicken by hand with two forks but listen, you have got to try this hack instead. So here’s how it works:

  1. Cook boneless chicken however you like (our personal favorite is cooking it from frozen in the Instant Pot), then toss the cooked chicken into a large bowl.
  2. Next, get out your hand mixer (or a stand mixer will work too), and shred away! This step should only take a few seconds.

Voila, you’ll have perfectly shredded chicken ready in no time! Then you can add it to salad, mix it with sauces, and enjoy in a sandwich or however else you enjoy eating shredded chicken. Keep in mind, you’ll want to be careful while shredding as your chicken will be hot! If you want to play it safe allow the chicken to cool for a few minutes before shredding. If you need a video tutorial, check out the Tik Tok videos below!
