While I most often cook this in my Crockpot, you could easily cook in an Instant Pot or even on the stovetop. Just adjust the time accordingly. Using fresh herbs will give you the best flavor, but we typically only have dried herbs on hand. If you can plan ahead and pick up fresh herbs to have a bit brighter flavor.

Typically, we serve this slow cooker Greek chicken in a pita with some diced tomato, shredded lettuce, and a bit of feta cheese. We’ve also served it with some of this Instant Pot Hummus. It’s so good with toasted pita bread! Since it is a low point recipe, it makes for a great option when you use the 1 point St. Joseph’s pita to create “chips”.
This slow cooker Greek chicken recipe is a great option to use for flavor and protein on top of a bed of salad greens, or with a side of low point roasted vegetables. We like it with our Easy Roasted Broccoli as well as our Roasted Cauliflower and Cabbage. You can also serve with a side of Wild Rice Pilaf or your favorite steamed rice.
