Slow Cooker Greek Chicken

I adore Greek food. I actually crave feta cheese on a regular basis :)

I was really in the mood for some Greek cuisine last week and decided to change up they way I cooked my chicken. The end result was tender, easily shreddible, favorable chicken breasts with Greek flair. I actually made it two nights in a row I loved it so much! The first night we ate it as is with feta sprinkled on top. The feta softened up over the warm chicken and was rich in flavor. We served it with a side of Greek Salad and sliced Pita bread. The second night we made it for Greek Gyros and they tasted fabulous!

    Looks wonderful! We love feta, as well. My hubs says “everything’s betta’ with feta’” haha!! Thanks for the share–I’m all about slow cooker! As a teacher, I get home late very often. Can’t wait to try this one!

    Looks incredible!! I too can’t get enough Feta cheese.

    Slow cooker meals always make so much food – at least for two people which is what my family is currently. Anyway, it is always great for leftovers, especially when you can twist it just a bit for something new!

    I was also wondering what herbs to use if you don’t have Greek rub. And is the pampered chef the only one to make it? Is there something else that is similar?

    This looks awesome! I love crock pots – the recipe looks especially easy too! Can’t wait to try it! Pinned!

    I am wondering – wouldn’t it be easier to add canned chicken broth or sock rather to dissolve bouillon cubes?

    Can you find greek rub in the grocery store if you don’t have the Pampered Chef brand?

    This sounds delicious and easy! Do you have a recipe for the side dish you show in the picture! I’m looking for healthy and easy dishes since I am a teacher.

    Slow cooked chicken always comes out so tender, and I love all Greek flavors. I bet splashing some Greek yogurt over this chicken would be pretty delicious too!

  17. 18

    What spices are in the Pampeted Chef Rub?

  18. 19

    Putting this in the crockpot for tonight’s dinner! But I subbed the water and bouillon for chicken stock and I’m adding in some cut potatoes. Can’t wait for dinner!

    Can you freeze this and pull it out the day before and defrost in fridge and put in crock pot

    This looks great. I am excited to try it this week. For those looking for an alternative to the greek rub. McCormick sells one for about $4 a bottle. I will also be using low sodium chicken broth in place of the bullion/water combo.

  21. 22

    If you use chicken broth instead, how much chicken broth should you use?

    I made this last night and we hod it with wraps. Just put the hot shredded cicken on the wrap and then sprinkled feta cheese on the chicken then added lettuce and tomato and some fresh ground pepper. It was fantastic! My son said it was. The. Best thing I ever made in the crockpot! Thanks for the great recipe. If anyone is wondering I used 1 and half cups chicken broth in place of the bullion cube and hot water. Will be making this a lot!!!
