How to Make Shredded Chicken That Doesn't Dry Out:

My go-to way to cook chicken is by slow cooking it in the oven. The end result is chicken that falls apart at the touch of your fork. It's tender, moist, and tastes 10000x better!

  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Step 2: Add 1.5 lb chicken breasts to a casserole dish with cover.
  • Step 3: Season the chicken with salt & black pepper. Add a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Step 4: Cover tightly to bake for 2-3 hours on the middle rack, or until internal temperature reaches 165F.
  • Step 5: Let it rest covered for 10 minutes outside of the oven.

How to Shred Chicken in Seconds:


Once the fully cooked chicken has been through the 10 minute resting period, toss the chicken breasts in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the mixing attachment on low speed, whisk until the chicken is shredded to your preference.

And with this appetizer dip, you could even add all the ingredients into the mixing bowl and mix until creamy and well-combined. AKA - ZERO HASSLE 🙌

What is Melinda's Foods?

I don't say this delicately when I say that Melinda's Foods has the most flavorful hot sauces and condiment sauces I've yet to taste. There sauces are made with whole, fresh ingredients and the best peppers on this planet to strike that perfect balance between heat and flavor.

Does Melinda's Foods have a Buffalo Sauce?

Yes! Their version of a buffalo sauce is a Creamy Cayenne-Habanero Wing Sauce. Unlike your typical buffalo sauce, their wing sauce is a flavorful blend of their signature habaneros and a pinch of cayenne for an irresistible spicy and tangy sauce.

It's perfect for slathering on your baked or air-fried chicken wings, our buffalo chicken dip, firecracker shrimp, turkey sandwiches, veggie wraps, & more!

What is special about Melinda's Hot Sauces?

As you all know, I only like to share about brands that I truly think are amazing. And Melinda's Foods is one of them. My family has been buying Melinda's hot sauces for YEARS. Funny enough, I think my brother might go through a bottle every 1-2 weeks 😂 Yes, he inherited the appetite for spice!

But what I love most is that their hot sauces are not loaded with sodium, they are made with fresh ingredients that you can recognize, and they have a variety of sauces from mild to hot heat that will add the best flavor to just about any dish!
