Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Gyros
I can’t take the credit for this recipe because my husband thought it up. And let me tell you it is so yummy! The flavor and texture combination is perfect. I used to think that I didn’t like bleu cheese but I am totally loving it lately! A little bit goes such a long way and it brings so much flavor.
To start this slow cooker buffalo chicken gyros you’ll just throw some chicken and buffalo sauce in your slow cooker. I have used chicken breasts for this recipe but I have also used chicken thighs. It’s totally up to you! I’ve also used frozen and thawed chicken. It doesn’t really matter.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Gyros I used my 6 quart oval KitchenAid slow cooker. I love this slow cooker because it cooks evenly and low. I also love this slow cooker because it has a neat timer with satisfying beeping buttons as well as a medium setting for those days where you start your slow cooker at an in-between time. If you’re in the market for a new slow cooker I definitely recommend this one!Print

Bleu cheese dressing is spooned down the middle of a warm pita and then topped with shredded chicken that has been stirred together with buffalo sauce. Then it’s topped with crunchy celery and bleu cheese crumbles. This is a party in your mouth!
- 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts of thighs, trimmed of excess fat (can be frozen)
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (I like to use mild)
- 6 pitas
- 6 Tbsp bleu cheese dressing
- 6 Tbsp chopped celery
- 6 Tbsp bleu cheese crumbles
- Optional: lettuce and tomatoes
- Place chicken and buffalo sauce in your slow cooker. If you’re using chicken thighs cook on low for 4-6 hours. If you’re using chicken breasts cook on low for 3-5 hours. If the chicken is frozen add 2 hours to the cooking time. Shred the chicken and stir it in with the sauce. Add in more sauce, if desired.
- Spoon a tablespoon of bleu cheese dressing down the middle of a warm pita. Then top with about 1/3 cup of chicken. Sprinkle with chopped celery and a few bleu cheese crumbles. You can also add lettuce and tomato, if you desire.

I just made this in our 8 qt Instant Pot for New Year’s Eve. Of course it got modified a little bit–I added a bunch of green onions and some mushrooms to it. WOW! It turned out great! I’m sure the sauce wasn’t as think as it would have been without the additions, but the flavor was fabulous.
Thank you for the recipe and your website.
What a great way to end the year Lance! Yum!
