Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Pita

This has been on my “to try” list for a long time and boy and I glad I finally tried it. It was a huge hit! I tried this on a super busy day. In the morning I threw the chicken and spices into the slow cooker (it took at most 5 minutes) and left for the day.  When we got back in the evening I got the salads together, chopped up some lettuce to add to the mix, and we were sitting down to dinner in less than 20 minutes! Everyone loved it and there was a bunch left over for lunches the next day. My 8-year-old declared it a recipe to be added to the rotation.

Make Again? YES!

Lamb and Spinach Pizza

Another winner in our house! I didn’t have baby spinach on hand, so we missed that component (would definitely add it in the future). I used some yogurt dip I already had in the fridge (basically the same recipe as hers, just with added herbs). I let kids decide whether they wanted feta (one did, one didn’t) and I let them top their own pizzas with the mint and yogurt sauce (both went for mint, one for the yogurt sauce). They were so simple and everyone loved how they got to make them their own way.

Make Again? Most definitely!

I used 3 cups of vegetable stock that I had left over, plus 1 cup of water. Then I added extra soy sauce to boost flavor. I also used regular spaghetti rather than whole wheat, since that’s what I had on hand. A tip: stir it often! It starts to stick on the bottom. I would worry about it sticking more with whole wheat pasta since it takes longer to cook. To make this vegetarian I think you could easy replace the chicken with tofu or seitan. I thought the finished dish was ok, everyone else in the family loved it. Definitely a healthy, easy dinner I will keep in my back pocket.

Make Again? Yup.
