Ingredients

For the Greek Chicken:

  • 1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Veggies:

  • 4 cups mixed vegetables frozen or fresh

Instructions

  • Place chicken into a gallon size Ziploc bag. Add all other ingredients, squeeze out as much air from the bag as possible, and seal the bag. Massage the bag to combine everything and place the bag of chicken into the refrigerator to marinate for 2-12 hours.
  • Empty contents of bag into a 6-quart slow cooker and cook on low heat for 6 hours or high heat for 4 hours, or until the chicken is no longer pink and shreds easily with a fork.
  • Using 2 forks, shred the chicken inside of the slow cooker, add the frozen mixed veggies, replace the lid, and allow it to cook for an additional 15-20 minutes. Alternately, you can steam fresh vegetables separately and then stir them into the shredded chicken.
  • Divide into 4 bowls and serve.

Notes

This low carb chicken recipe is delicious as is, but would also be great served over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles!
