Greek Chicken Pitas

I was going to make this with Greek Green Beans... but I didn't, decided on greek salad instead.  This was a super WIN!  in the dinner department!  Though, I could have made twice as much sauce (which will be remedied for leftovers tomorrow!)

2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
1 small onion diced
1/4 c lemon juice
½ c chicken broth
2 t salt

Greek Cucumber Sauce

1 t salt
1 c Greek Yogurt
1 t pepper
1 clove garlic (I used two small ones)
1 t oregano
½ cucumber, shredded

Combine onion, lemon juice, salt, & chicken broth and pour into crockpot. Add chicken. Cook 5 to 7 hours on low.
Remove chicken from crock pot and shred with fork, set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, pepper, salt, garlic, oregano, & cucumber.
Fill pitas with chicken & tomato. Top with yogurt sauce and feta!!

I love Greek food.
n Greece the fruits and vegetables taste so much sweeter being ripen by a flood of sun.
I have never tried the cucumber sauce, but it doesn't seem too hard, and I will definitely try.
My Gunnar cannot have beans because of the purine, but this dish is right up his alley.
Thanks for sharing.
