Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (~ 4 large chicken breasts )
  • 1 cup  dry quinoa (yields about 3 cups cooked)
  • 2 cups corn (or a can of corn, rinsed)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced

Use your KitchenAid or standing mixer to shred chicken! It is such a time saver but make sure to keep an eye on it or else it will turn into chicken pâte !
