Chicken Gyros

I don't know when exactly this happened but I discovered a love for Chicken gyros, and I found a delicious crock pot recipe for them. I prefer to cook these types of chicken recipes in the crock pot because the chicken just falls apart and shreds so easily.
When it comes to tzatziki sauce it’s pretty simple to make and I haven’t tried the recipe included. I use this one, but only because I like the lemony taste. http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/tzatziki-recipe/

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
1 onion, diced
¼ cup water
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon lemon pepper

Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
Place chicken breasts inside slow cooker.
Mix remaining ingredients together in a bowl and pour over chicken breasts.
Cook on HIGH for 3-4 hours or LOW 6-8 hours.
Shred chicken and serve with pocketless pita bread, sliced tomatoes, sliced onions, sliced cucumbers, lettuce, feta cheese and Tzatziki sauce.

Microwave Score: 4.5 no issues here but I think it tastes just as good cold.
Freezer Score: haven’t tried to freeze it yet
Jake Score: 4 He isn’t a fan of pita bread usually so through his inspiration we tried it as a salad with the tzatziki sauce as the dressing. YUM!
Overall Score: 4.5 it’s pretty yummy and it’s really easy to make. And it makes a lot! I can have lunch for a week!
