Slow Cooker Greek Chicken
I've got yet another delicious "set it and forget it" meal to share with you today! I am in a slow cooker/Instant Pot season of life. It just makes dinner so much easier and smelling it all day is an added bonus. This greek chicken is to-die-for! It is light, yet satiating and is easy to double. I continue to double almost every meal I make so that I have healthy options on hand for the week, yet only one prep time in the kitchen. Oh, and did I mention this is Whole3o and Paleo-approved??? Delicious! Enjoy!
2 pounds chicken, breasts or thighs (or a mix of both)
6 chopped red potatoes
2 red bell peppers, sliced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
½ cup sliced black olives (I omitted these because I'm not an olive person).
1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
3/4 cup chicken stock
4 tablespoon Tahini (Can find at Trader Joe's).
1 tablespoon dried dill
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
Juice of 1 lemon
Fresh chopped parsley (to garnish)
2 tablespoons chopped red onion (to garnish)
more salt & pepper to taste
In a slow cooker combine chicken breasts, potatoes, bell peppers, garlic, olives, sun dried tomatoes, chicken stock, 2 tablespoons of tahini, dried dill, dried oregano and 1 teaspoon salt. Stir until combined and chicken is coated, then cook on low for 6-8 hours on low.
When chicken is fully cooked, shred it with a fork, while keeping it in the slow cooker, and then add in 2 more tablespoons of tahini and juice of lemon
