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 is moist as all heck. 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.
Any idea how hard it is to get a decent picture of raw meat? Do you know? It’s hard, people, okay? Bear with me- sure, my raw chicken is ugly, but once cooked- holy cow….It’s your new best friend.
Once it’s done, spoon it onto your dish of choice; Inside a pita, on a plate with some veggies for a Greek style Whole30 Budha bowl (cucumber, tomato, red onion) with some red wine vinegar over it. If you’re NOT on the Whole30 lifestyle- mix up some 30 second Tzatkiki sauce as a topping to your Gyro ( 1 cup Greek plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill, 1 clove chopped garlic, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and salt and pepper). This stuff is delicious!
