Accessories you need
Don’t wash the bowl between any of the steps.
Pop the chicken in the freezer to cool as you can’t be too careful with chicken.
If you sprinkle the sugar separately to the cinnamon you get that lovely white snowy effect pictured above.
Stirring the chicken on a faster speed will help shred it as in the picture above. If you like the meat a bit chunkier the use speed soft for stirring.
A small amount of cornflour will help thicken the sauce.
