How To Make slow cooker greek chicken gyros

  • 1
    Place chicken in crock pot/slow cooker.
  • 2
    Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pour over chicken.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on low 6 hours.
  • 4
    Shred chicken and mix around in juices in crock pot.
  • 5
    Serve in warm pitas or over a salad for a Greek type salad. Add toppings like tzatziki sauce (I shared my recipe if you would like to try it), chopped seedless cucumber, chopped tomatoes, sliced red onions, pitted Greek olives, and feta cheese. I do not recommend cutting the pitas open to make pockets, because the meat is juicy and will soak through a pocket making a mushy mess.
