Slow Cooker Chicken Gyros

Mondays are busy for me so I usually like to make a meal in the slow cooker so it's ready to go at dinner. This meal is one of my favorite weeknight "go to" recipes. Simple yet delicious!

Slow Cooker Chicken Gyros
Serves 4
Cal 255, Fat 1g, Carbs 34g, Fiber 1g, Protein 22.5

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
2 tbsp. Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
4 whole wheat pita bread folds
sliced tomato
red onion
feta cheese, if desired

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, cucumber sauce, and feta cheese, if desired. 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.
