The ones that pop out are the fantastic pictures that link you to amazing recipes! Keep looking and you will find TERRIFIC cooking tips. Seriously. I have so many cool recipes pinned that I can't wait to try! For my first Pinterest recipe, I decided to try this Oreo mini-Cheesecake recipe (Thanks FormulaMom!). First to crunch up the Oreos, I used a tip I had found on Pinterest. The tip was "to make shredded chicken like restaurants use in their recipes, use the paddle on your KitchenAid mixer. Put the cooked boneless chicken in while still warm and turn on."
This is what the paddle attachment looks like:
So I thought, wow if it'll shred chicken, I wonder if it will crunch Oreos?
Heck yea it did! In seconds! I was so excited! So the mini Oreo cheesecakes were FAB.U.LOUS! I can't wait to make them again! And for dinner.......
I decided I better try shredding chicken. It works so well! I am kicking myself for standing around with 2 forks trying to shred chicken when I've had this mixer for like 5 years!!!!!
BTW I used the shredded chicken to make some great BBQ chicken. I put the already cooked, shredded chicken in the crockpot with a mix of BBQ sauce & Country Bob's. Then I put some onion in for extra flavor. Let it simmer on low until dinner time then served as sandwiches with mayo or ranch (depending on the family member). It was tasty and perfectly shredded!
