Slow Cooker Chicken Gyro Boats

Here are the oh so delicious chicken gyros from our Greek themed dinner with friends.  They were surprisingly easy and the Tzatziki sauce is to die for!  It’s a Betty Crocker recipe.

  1. Thank you for the recipe. I agree, the sauce was to die for. Thank you for dinner and getting old friends together. It was like old times except the kids have gotten older. It was so nice to visit in your lovely home and see your parents. It was one of the best parts of our trip. Cliff could not get over your dad and mom driving for three days. The first night back home Cliff slept for twelve hours. I hope all is going well for all of you and especially your cat who can now roam the house again. Love, Alice
