Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Gyros

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 4-6 hours on low
  • Total Time: 57 minute
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
