Crockpot Chicken Gyros Recipe

Ingredients: (serves 3-4, I recommend doubling for leftovers!)

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar

Mix all of these ingredients in your crockpot! Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3.5-4 hours. Shred chicken in the crockpot using two forks (this is what I do!) and let them sit in the juice for another 30 minutes on WARM. Serve however you’d like! We usually serve as an open plate with whole wheat pita, diced tomatoes, cucumber, mixed greens and tzatziki sauce. Top with feta and enjoy!

Seriously this is the easiest recipe and is sure to be a favorite in your house – adults and kids both love it! Make sure to tag me on IG – @lizadams – if you make any of my recipes!
