This Slow Cooker Greek Chicken is easy to throw together and packed with flavor! Great for busy weeknights and Whole30 approved!Who doesn’t love a good slow cooker chicken meal?!  This Slow Cooker Greek Chicken is the product of throwing all of my favorite greek inspired ingredients into our crock pot and waiting for the magic to happen.  And ya know what? It worked!! I used 2 pounds of chicken in this so we had TONS of chicken to last us through the week.  Each meal we ate it with was a little different too, the flavors are so versatile!  We added it to a bowl with roasted veggies, cauliflower rice and even these cucumber noodles!  And because cucumbers are so watery we just keep them raw and they were perfect!

What makes my Slow Cooker Greek Chicken, GREEK?

So when I am trying to make a recipe with the Whole30 guidelines (aka no cheese or grains), it can be hard to make something authentically one type of flavor.  For instance, to make this super greeky, you could add some greek yogurt, top with feta cheese and add in some rice or cous cous… but that’s not my jam man!  So what makes this greek?  Olives. Dill. Tahini. Red Onion. Lemon. Sun dried Tomatoes!!  So many flavors go into certain ethnic cuisines and you can make any one of them compliant with the way you eat.  So you probably know I am obsessed with tahini and make tahini sauce to drizzle on everything, so greek food is some of my favorite!!  I also love the tahini at  Trader Joes, which I highlight in my Whole30 Trader Joes Must Haves list!  Everything from TJ is perfect for the Slow Cooker Greek Chicken recipe. If you are thinking, hmm where would one find tahini in the store?  I used to not know this either until I started buying it more, and now I know it is by the nut butters in pretty much all stores!  And now ya know! 🙂

  1. Made this and it was amazing!! I want to make it again but would love to try it in the instant pot – do you have a time suggestion? I just got it so I’m still getting the hang of times! 🙂 Thank you SO much for your amazing recipes!!

    I prepped this last night so it was ready in the morning, having cooked overnight, and I’ve just had it for dinner. This is delicious! I made zoodles with it, which matched perfectly, and I threw in some aubergine as well as I had it in the freezer and figured it’s a vegetable often seen in Greek dishes – I’d recommend it! Thanks for a great recipe!

    This is super delicious! I’ve made this a lot and it’s always good. Not a fan of sun dried tomatoes so I leave those out and it still turns out fine! Have also left out the peppers and still good. Thank you for this go-to slow cooker recipe!

    This was SO good! Perfect crock pot meal for the middle of the week. I served it over greens, and it was kid and husband approved–my nine-year-old even took leftovers for lunch the next day:)

    I liked it, but it was very filling and not particularly “Greek.” I’d describe it more as “Mediterranean.”
