Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken Gyros

This is one of my favorite lighter meals. What I love even more is that it can be made in the slow cooker so it's a great time saver especially during the week!

Slow Cooker Lemon 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
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4 whole wheat pita bread folds
sliced tomato
red onion
tzatki sauce, optional but I love it!

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 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, if desired. Fold pita breads in half to serve. Enjoy!
