Lemon Garlic Crock Pot Chicken Gyros

Most know I am obsessed with Crock Pot recipes and this is one of my favorites! I love the combination of lemon and garlic and since my husband has been requesting that I make chicken gyros I figured I would combine the two and make Lemon Garlic Chicken Gyros. Oh my word...these were SO good! I topped these delicious gyros with a lemon tzatki sauce. It was heaven!

Lemon Garlic Crock Pot Chicken Gyros
Serves 4
WW PP=6 (1 Gyro with 2 tbsp. sauce)
Cal 270, Carbs 13, Fat 3, Fiber 2, Protein 40

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup lemon seasoning blend (I like Mrs. Dash)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tbsp. oregano
4 pita breads
sliced tomato 
sliced red onion

In a small bowl mix garlic, lemon seasoning, and oregano. Add chicken to the crock pot and coat with seasoning mixture. Pour in the lemon juice. 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 tzatki sauce. Fold pita breads in half to serve. Enjoy!

For The Tzatki Sauce
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
Juice of one lemon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 clove minced garlic

Combine all ingredients and let chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
