How to Grind Chicken Without a Meat Grinder | Real Food RN

So one night I was CRAVING some good old P.F. Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps. I was so happy to find some chicken in the back of my freezer. Except, it was not ground chicken. What’s a girl to do? Grind it up myself I guess. I was worried that I might turn it into chicken paste though. So, after some online searching and tutorials, I found a method that works. I taught myself how to grind chicken without a meat grinder!

What you need:

Directions:

  • Using a sharp knife, cut the chicken into chunks
  • Place on a tinfoil lined baking sheet

  • Place the entire sheet into the freezer for about 20-30 minutes. You want the chicken firm, but not frozen through
  • Put the chunks into a food processor or blender, in batches of about 10 at a time and pulse them until chopped

  • Put the ground chicken into a large bowl and continue to process the other chunks until it is all chopped
  • Voila! You have ground your own meat without a meat grinder!
