How to Shred Chicken in the Thermomix

Steaming and shredding chicken in the Thermomix is a breeze and so much healthier than the processed stuff you buy from the supermarket. It will keep in the fridge for up to four days making it handy for school lunch sandwiches, rolls and wraps.

Shredded chicken is also a great addition to salads, pizza toppings, soups, nacho toppings, pasta bakes and pretty much anything else.

  2. Steam for 15-20 minutes/Varoma/speed 1. Timing will vary greatly on the thickness of the chicken.
  3. Once cooked through, roughly cut the chicken up to cool. Empty the water from the TM bowl and discard of any herbs or garlic.

Shredding Chicken in the Thermomix Bowl

  1. Place the cooled chicken into the TM bowl (without the water, herbs or garlic).
  2. Mix for 3 sec/reverse/speed 4. If you’d like it finer just mix for a second or two more. It’s better to under mix at first rather than over mix otherwise you run the risk of ending up with chicken paste!
