Crockpot Greek Chicken with Easy Tzatziki

This is a recipe that I have found many variations of on Pinterest, I've tried a couple different versions and this is what I found came together to make it UH-MAH-ZING!

This is one of my favorite summer meals since it can be light on the stomach. You can toss in a crockpot in the morning then relax outside after work instead of slaving away in the kitchen. The secret is really in the cucumber, under no circumstances should you skip the cukes!

Ingredients

2-3 chicken breasts
3 cups of water or chicken broth
(if you do water, add one bouillon cube)
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Allspice
1 Pich of Dill
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 yellow onion
1 single serving container of plain greek yogurt

Add all of the contents to the crock pot, except the yogurt... we have other plans for that little guy muahahahaha!

I set my crockpot for eight hours on low so it cooks all day while I work. If you are home during the day you could probably do 4-6 hours. I leave it up to your discretion as I would not want you to burn your house down with a crockpot or eat partially uncooked chicken.

After it's done pull out the chicken and shred, take the remaining juice and add to the Greek yogurt. Mix until it makes a creamy sauce, sprinkle in some dill and a little finely chopped cucumber.

Add chicken, lettuce, and cucumber to pita pocket and drizzle with sauce... munch... crunch... repeat.
