I love that this recipe is A) Whole30 compliant (the meat, that is) B) It can be topped on a salad or stuffed inside a pita C) it’s in a slow cooker and easy as heck to make!
The trick to this Slow Cooker Greek Chicken is using chicken thighs. A low and slow technique makes for easy shredding, and this Slow Cooker Greek Chicken it super moist. SO DELICIOUS.
A simple spice mixture gets your chicken to Greek status as it mixes and melds in the slow cooker. The best part is- you can’t really go wrong with your spices in this dish. Mix and match as you prefer. Don’t like smoked paprika? Add in a pinch of chili powder for some added heat. Don’t like lemon? Leave it out. The world is your oyster! Er…slow cooker. The world is your slow cooker.
Once the chicken is done, spoon it onto your dish of choice; Inside a pita, on a plate with some veggies for a Greek style Buddha bowl (cucumber, tomato, red onion and white/brown rice or quinoa) with some red wine vinegar over it. To make up some 30 second Tzatkiki sauce as a topping to your Gyro, mix 1 cup Greek plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill, 1 clove chopped garlic, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. This stuff is delicious!
