I have loved Pinterest since I first became famililar with the concept of a virtual memo pad. I have about 50 boards on my Pinterest page and I refer to them quite often. I can say that I have had very few Pinterest Fails. Most of the recipes I have tried are good and the craft and decorating projects have turned out well too.
Yesterday I was making a casserole that needed shredded chicken. I do not know about you but I hate shredding chicken after it is cooked. I had seen a pinterest pin that I thought I would try. After your chicken is done boiling or baking, ( I always bake mine in the oven with olive oil, salt and pepper), you put it in a Kitchen Aid mixer with the paddle attachment and turn it on. The picture showed perfectly shredded chicken. You must do it while the chicken is warm by the way. Well it worked like a charm!
Here is my finished product. Now I do not know if it would work with a mixer with beaters but the paddle did a great job of tearing the chicken apart just right. And in no time at all I might add. I will never have to shred chicken by hand anymore!! I did cut up my chicken in large pieces before adding it to the mixer, next time I might just put the chicken breasts in there whole and see what happens.
Thanks to all of you who commented on my post yesterday about Baylor's big achievement. So thankful for all the prayers you have prayed for him. And then when I went to my mailbox I found this pretty card from my blog friend, Mildred. The blogging community makes such a difference in my life! I count it a privilege to know each and every one of you online and I am sure that if we met up we would sit for hours just chatting away!
Well today is Friend Day and Deborah is making lunch for us!! I look forward to spending some time at her lovely home in the country. Yes...I do have a hard life don't I????
