Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion small
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 2 eggs whisked
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs plain
  • 1 lemon juiced and zested
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 whole-wheat naan bread or pita bread rounds, 6 inch

Toppings

  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 cucumber sliced
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt low-fat, plain
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges

Instructions

  • In a food processor, pulse onion and garlic until pureed.
  • In a large bowl, stir together onion puree, ground chicken, eggs, breadcrumbs, lemon (juice and zest), thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Mix together until well combined.
  • Form into a large ball and place in a 4-quart crockpot which has been drizzled with olive oil. Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low.
  • Unplug crockpot and remove lid 30 minutes before serving. This will allow the gyros to set and cut into nice slices.
  • When ready to serve, remove meat from the slow cooker. Slice and serve on warmed pita bread topped with tomatoes, cucumbers, yogurt, and fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Enjoy!
