Are you still relying on the time-consuming, traditional method of shredding chicken? Well, not anymore! Throw away your forks and knives because with our Blendtec tip, you won’t have to spend hours in the kitchen shredding chicken. With a Blendtec blender, we'll show you how to shred chicken—and it only takes seconds.

You can do so many things with shredded chicken—from Tuesday night tacos to homemade chicken noodle soup. Start by cooking boneless chicken using your favorite method—grilling, baking, or frying. You can use leftovers or cook the chicken breast fresh for this recipe. Either way, all you need to do is pop the chicken in the Blendtec blender and press pulse until it’s shredded to your liking. Within seconds you’ve got a protein-rich, family-friendly meal.

For this recipe, we’re making shredded barbecue chicken sliders, a tasty meal that’s perfect for summer fun and entertaining guests. Once the chicken is done shredding, we added tangy barbecue sauce and pulsed a couple more times. We finished the recipe by adding the shredded chicken to pretzel rolls and topping with carrots, purple cabbage and purple onions—but you can top it with whatever you like. Either way, it’s a great, quick meal for lounging around the pool with your family or having a backyard get-together.

If you are looking to shred chicken for meal prepping, try doubling your recipes and freeze a batch for a delicious, last-minute meal or store in containers to use in recipes all week long! No matter how you use it, this shredded chicken is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    I want to make snow cones and the recipe says select Ice crush, I don’t have ice crush on my blendtec so would I select ice cream?
