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.
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.
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.
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:)
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.
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.:(
My family likes this recipe very much. I agree with other reviewers about the chicken's dryness so I add a little chicken broth to the bottom of the crock as well. I don't use lemon pepper but I do add sliced fresh lemon to the bottom of the crock with the onion and mix pepper with the oregano and allspice to season the chicken. I've done it the same way in the oven when I was in more of a hurry and it was just as good. We like to add dill to the yogurt sauce too. Thanks for sharing!
