Slow Cooker Greek Chicken

By now you know that I am obsessed with my slow cooker and I’ve found another great recipe! Β It has tons of flavor and is super filling. Plus I love Greek food and this really helps that craving in a healthy way.

Greek Chicken in Slow Cooker


  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Red Onion, diced
  • 2 Cups Vegetable Broth
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Tbs. Oregano
  • 1 Tbs. Basil


In the slow cooker, mix all of the ingredients together except the chicken and quinoa.

Then place the chicken on top and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours.

Right before serving cook the quinoa on stove top according to package instructions.

When serving you can also incorporate kalamata olives, cucumber slices, and feta cheese.

I’m not gonna lie, cutting this red onion was pretty brutal…I looked like I had been crying for days, but I powered through πŸ™‚

Once my herbs grow a little bit more, I would like to incorporate fresh oregano and basil, but for now this will do.

I just hand squeeze the lemon…one of my friends used her citrus press and she said it was a bit too lemony.

When I get home I cook the quinoa, which takes about 10 minutes and then it’s ready to go! Β Such an easy recipe that is packed full of flavor…and makes my hectic life a little easier πŸ™‚
