(For Friday Favorites we feature past recipes you may have missed, and I love everything about these Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Pita Pockets from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.)

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Greek food, so when I spotted these Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Pita Pockets from Mel's Kitchen Cafe on Pinterest, I knew I had to feature them here.  Boneless, skinless chicken breasts cook with Greek seasonings on low until the chicken is fall-apart tender; then the chicken is shredded apart and served in pita pockets with yogurt, tomatoes, cucumbers, and red bell pepper.  Doesn't that sound like a perfect Slow Cooker Summer Dinner?

Ingredients for this CrockPot Recipe:
  • Onion
  • garlic
  • boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • lemon pepper
  • dried oregano
  • Allspice
  • For serving: Pita pocket breads, plain yogurt, tomato, cucumber, red bell pepper.

  1. My wife and I really enjoyed this. Dinner last night and having leftovers for lunch today. Used my mandolin to cut cucumber into matchsticks and added sliced black olives. Didn't have bell pepper or yogurt so omitted those, but VERY easy and yummy. A keeper!

  2. Thanks Ed, so glad you enjoyed it!
