One of my favorite foods to prep in advance is shredded chicken. Cooking a whole chicken and then shredding the meat in advance helps me save money and quickly prepare meals throughout the week.
To Shred: Allow the chicken to cool so you can easily handle the meat. Once the chicken is cool, pull the meat away from the bones and place it a large bowl (or the bowl of a stand-mixer). The meat should easily pull away from the bones. Use two forks to shred the chicken into the desired size pieces. My favorite method for shredding chicken is to use the paddle attachment on my Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer. Turn the mixer on low for about 30 seconds until you reach the desired size pieces.a
