Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Easily shred a cooked boneless chicken breast by placing it in your stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Turn on the mixer for about 30 seconds or until the chicken is finely shredded.
  • tip 2
    Feel free to substitute shredded pork or beef for the shredded chicken breast.
  • tip 3
    If you'd prefer, serve topped with chopped tomatoes and sour cream.
