Tip: Shred Chicken Fast
- Use your stand mixer and paddle attachment to shred chicken fast.
- If cooking the chicken in a slow cooker or pressure cooker, you can use a hand mixer to quickly shred the chicken right in the pot.

- 2 Gala small apples diced
- 1 cup chopped pecans

- Season the chicken breast with salt, pepper, and granulated garlic on both sides.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.
- Chop each chicken breast into 3 to 4 large chunks and place it in the mixer.
- The chicken will shred easily. (You can also just chop each chicken breast into small pieces).
- Chop the apples into bite size pieces and add 2 to 3 teaspoons of lemon juice and toss.
