Greek Chicken Pitas

Recipe made in slow cooker, but can be altered to stove top for leftover chicken.

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 clove(s) minced garlic
  • 1 pound(s) chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) lemon pepper

  • 4 pita pocket breads
  • 1/2 cup(s) plain yogurt
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup(s) chopped cucumber
  • 1 medium red bell peper (in thin strips)


1. In slow-cooker, combine onion, garlic, chicken, lemon pepper, oregano, and allspice; mix to coat chicken with seasoning. (Or cook onion in pan, adding leftover chicken later.)

2. Cover and cook on LOW for 4–6 hours.

3. Heat pita bread as directed on package.

4. Meanwhile, remove chicken from slow-cooker; place on cutting board. Using two forks, shred chicken.
