Slow Cooker Greek Gyros

*Adapted from Design Mom.

Serves: 6-8
Prep: 30 minutes

1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces (4 chicken breasts or 8 thighs)
juice of 2 large lemons
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 1/2 tsp dried dill
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 pitas

Combine all ingredients except the pitas in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. (I cooked on low for 4 hours and they were perfect.) Do NOT overcook or the chicken will begin to dry out.

Serve on pitas with tzatziki. Serve with a Greek salad (greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, olives, and Greek dressing). Another easy side that goes deliciously well are Alexia oven fries with olive oil, rosemary, and garlic. Yum!
