This is a very good recipe. However I skipped the slow cooker part. Just saute the onion and garlic in a bit of olive oil season the chicken and then brown it in the skillet. Mix the dressing and you're ready to eat. Much easier and faster this way. Read More

This was okay but didn't live up to the idea. It was very dry and not that flavorful. It's way too much time in the pot for this amount of chicken with no liquid... the onions were blackened and gave it all a funky taste-- and I took it out an hour early! I would love to find a good recipe for a Greek Gyro to get the meat tender and moist like slow roasting does... this is not it. Read More

This was easy to make and a hit with my family ages 1 4 and 35. I liked it too. I used chic thighs. I didn't have lemon pepper either so I added salt and pepper to the spice mixture and then added a bit of lemon juice (bottled) to the crock pot before cooking. after 5 hours on low (instead of 6 on high) it was super tender not dry and perfect for gyros. yummy.

No good at all. Sorry. This really lacked flavor which suprised me. I really don't know what else to say but other than it tastes really bad. 99.99% of the recipes that I make from this site are awesome. But just not this one. Thanks for taking your time to post this recipe though:) Read More

The flavors of this recipe are a good base but the chicken turned out very dry after cooking in the crock pot all day. The next time I will marinate in the onion and spices all day and cook stove-top. Also salt garlic and fresh ground pepper are a definite must for the cucumber sauce. We will make again with these adjustments. Read More

I went by this recipe just about as is only thing I changed was to turn the crock pot to low for the 6 hours instead of high - as others had suggested.The only thing good about this meal was the cucumber yogurt and the pitas. When I got home from work the edges of the chicken were not only brown but dry and cracking.. we were hungry so decided to salvage what we could. The remaining chicken had a dry consistency and and an odd texture. On top of the terrible texture of the chicken the spices used in the mixture did don't fare well with the cucumber sauce. It was like drinking a glass of koolaid and then a glass of milk... didn't work at all. I am very disappointed in this recipe without making major adjustments I just don't feel I'd ever make this again.:( Read More

This was mediocre will not make again. I don't think cooking the chicken breasts in the Crockpot produces a gyro style meat. I'll stick to grilling my chicken gyros. Read More

I tried this earlier today and it came out very well. Reading complaints about the chicken drying out during cooking I brined the chicken first and it came out just fine. Read More

I followed the directions perfectly and the chicken turned out dry and with very little flavor. I will never make this again. Read More
