Crockpot Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

These were REALLY good and super easy to put together.  

I found this keeper from Six Sisters Stuff!  

You could mix together the Tzatziki sauce, refrigerate and then mix together the chicken ingredients in the crockpot and refrigerate overnight to start the next morning.

Gyro Ingredients:
-1 lb. boneless skinless chicken {I used boneless, skinless chicken tenders}
-3 garlic cloves, minced
-1/4 cup lemon juice
-1 onion, diced
-1/4 cup water
-1 tbsp olive oil
-2 tbsp red wine vinegar
-1 tsp oregano
-1/4 tsp allspice
-1 tsp lemon pepper

Tzatziki Sauce Ingredients:  
{I used half of the original recipe and it was plenty}
-16 oz. plain yogurt {I used greek yogurt}
-1 average sized cucumber, seeded & chopped {I used 1/2 a seedless or english cucumber}
-2 cloves garlic, crushed
-1 tsp red wine vinegar
-1/2 tsp lemon juice
-1/4 tsp dried dill weed
-salt, pepper and olive oil to taste

1. Spray crockpot with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Place chicken into crockpot.
3. In a small bowl, combine garlic lemon juice, onion, water, oil, vinegar, oregano, allspice and lemon pepper.
 Mix well.
4. Pour mixture over chicken, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
{You can shred the chicken before serving although it pretty much falls apart anyway.}
Meanwhile make sauce:
1. In a medium-small bowl combine yogurt, garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, dill, salt, pepper and oil.
 Mix well.
 2. Add chopped cucumber.
 Mix well.
3. Transfer Tzatziki to a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving {up to 1 day in advance}.

Enjoy the chicken in fresh pita bread with thinly sliced red onion, tomato, cucumber and the Tzatziki sauce.
