Taste Test Tuesday #5: Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Gyros

You know me. Though I hate this in myself, I can’t help but admit I’m a bit lazy. That’s the main reason I absolutely love my slow cooker. I especially love recipes where you don’t have to do anything BUT throw all the ingredients into your slow cooker. Then, you just wait and TA-DA! Dinner is done. This is one of those recipes and it’s SO delicious! It’s also low calorie and low carb. Total win.
