This solution is only valid for owners of the "Shen's Last Gift" DLC pack. It's not necessarily the easiest way to get this done, but it's certainly the earliest it could be completed in your campaign.

During the "Lost Tower" mission, Lily Shen will be part of your ground team and if you attempt it as soon as it's available in your campaign she will be significantly better than any other support trooper you have available. Once you progress to the third segment of the mission, the AI Julien will now be housed in the body of a Sectopod (a serious threat you generally don't encounter until at least month four or five). Use Lily's Haywire ability to stun the Sectopod and you should have a success rate of 70-80%.

While on this mission it is also possible to get the following achievements the same relative ease:
XCOM 2CyberlordThe Cyberlord achievement in XCOM 2 worth 14 pointsEarn a second tier hack reward

XCOM 2Stop Hitting YourselfThe Stop Hitting Yourself achievement in XCOM 2 worth 37 pointsKill an enemy with a hacked turret
