Crock Pot Greek Chicken Pitas



It's Wednesday and this is the first time I've used my crock pot this week. That's a record for me! Lately, I've been craving Greek food. Grecian Chicken in particular. I decided to search for a healthy Greek chicken recipe and when I found this crock pot Greek chicken pita recipe, I knew I would be making it. This was so good. A cross between a Gyro and Grecian Chicken. It was so flavorful and I couldn't get enough of the cucumber sauce. It was a hit!

Ingredients
16 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning (I love Mrs. Dash)
1 tsp oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 roma tomato, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
4 pita bread folds (I used whole wheat pitas)
1 cup cucumber sauce (recipe below)

In a small bowl mix garlic, lemon-pepper seasoning, and oregano. Add chicken to the crock pot and coat with seasoning mixture. Pour in the chicken broth. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

About 10 minutes before serving, heat pita bread folds as directed on package. Meanwhile, remove chicken from cooker and break into chunks. Spoon chicken onto warm pita breads. Top with tomato, red onion and cucumber sauce. Fold pita breads in half to serve. Enjoy!

For the cucumber sauce
1/2 cucumber, diced
2 6oz containers non fat Greek yogurt (I like Chobani)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Add your yogurt to a large mixing bowl. Add in your lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and diced cucumber. Stir well and let marinate in fridge for at least one hour.
