My freezer cooking life has CHANGED! I have been freezer cooking for 5.5 years and have shredded more chicken than you can imagine. This week was going to be a crazy week. I wondered whether there was an easier way than boiling my chicken (18 lbs) and shredding it with two forks when it was done. Some in our freezer cooking group don’t love boiled chicken, so they have tried other ways to cook it before shredding. I have always just boiled it~ until today!
Two days ago I looked up ways to cook and shred chicken and came across someone’s blog about it. It has changed my life! You put the thawed chicken breasts in a crock pot with water covering it. Put the crockpot on low and leave it for 6 hours. Next, dump out the water. I cut off any pieces that I didn’t like (fatty 😦 ) and then I used my handmixer on medium to shred the chicken! It took two minutes! I bagged it and put it the fridge for our freezer cooking tomorrow. WOW~ I cannot believe a hand mixer can do that. Did you all know this technique? I am not a cook, so this was news to me!
