I have made these before and this is my first attempt at cooking the chicken via slow cooker for this recipe. They have turned out succulent and full of fresh flavors. I hope you give these a try and please let me know what you think?! I would love to hear from you!
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 tsp lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dill
1 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. coriander
salt & black pepper, to taste
6-8 flatbreads (I used store-bought)
Tzatziki sauce, homemade or store bought (recipe follows)
Feta Cheese crumbles
- 3 roma tomatoes
- 1/3 cup red onion
- 1 medium cucumber
- kalamata olives
- romaine lettuce
Directions: 6-8 hours
Place chicken breasts along with minced garlic, thyme, oregano, coriander, lemon juice, and dill in bottom of slow cooker.
Cover and turn on LOW. Let cook for 6-8 hours.
Shred the chicken and stir with the juices it made while cooking.
1 medium cucumber, chopped
1 tsp salt, plus more to taste
1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tsp dried dill
Directions: Prep time 10 minutes
Place a diced cucumber in a mesh strainer or colander and sprinkle with salt, toss to evenly coat the cucumber then allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. (I peeled the cucumber, sliced it lengthwise, and used a spoon to clean out the seeds then proceeded with dicing).
Rinse cucumbers and place over several layers of paper towels. Squeeze some moisture as if you’re wringing out a cloth. You can place cucumber in a large mixing bowl, add Greek yogurt, garlic, dill, lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, parsley, and salt & pepper to taste. (If you want it more blended, you can always put these ingredients in the food processor).
This sauce can be stored in an air tight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
Here comes the most anticipated part of this decadent and succulent meal…………
Layer chicken in a row in the middle of the flatbread, top with lettuce (optional), tomatoes, cucumbers, Kalamata olives, red onion, feta cheese, Tzatziki sauce, and cilantro.
