(For Friday Favorites we spotlight recipes from the past that you might have missed, and this Slow Cooker Greek Chicken from Chef in Training is perfect for this time of year when a lot of people are looking for Phase One or Low-Carb options to make in the slow cooker.  Serve this like Nikki did with a side of healthy Greek Salad and this is a diet-friendly meal the whole family can enjoy!)

I'm someone who loves all types of Greek food, so when this Slow Cooker Greek Chicken from Chef in Training caught my eye, I immediately wanted to try it.  Boneless skinless chicken breasts cook on low with Greek flavors like lemon and garlic, bumped up with Greek seasoning.  If you have homemade chicken stock, you could use that in place of chicken bouillon cubes.  Nikki serves this with a sprinkle of crumbled Feta cheese, which always gets my vote!

  1. Made this yesterday and loved it!!!!
    Served with the Greek salad, just like the original post showed. It was delicious.
    I had totally forgotten to put the chicken in the slow cooker in enough time to have 6 hours on low, as directed. When I remembered, I only had about 4 hours til dinner, so I used a high setting. While the chicken probably would have been even better if I had done it for 6 hours on low - I can tell you that it was amazing for 4 hours on high! Falling apart, delicious flavor- just perfect. So, in a pinch, it's still amazing if you are short on time. I also didn't have greek rub, so I used an italian seasoning blend I had on hand, and added extra oregano. Smelled and tasted greek to me!
