with tomato and cucumber salad

Active: 35 min Total: 7 hr 35 min
We love slow cooker meals in the summer when it feels too hot to turn on an oven. Bone-in chicken is slow cooked (the bones add extra flavor!) and then used across two days. Tonight it's Mediterranean wraps with a great balsamic mayo and a side of tomato and cucumber salad.


Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken Wraps:
  • Tomatoes, small - 2 , diced
  • Italian seasonings - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Basil, dried - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Chicken breasts, skin-on and bone-in (enough for Thursday's meal) - 2 1/2 lbs
  • Balsamic vinegar - 1 Tbsp
  • Flatbreads, pita, or naan - 4
  • Arugula - 2 oz
Balsamic Mayo:
  • Garlic - 1 clove , minced
  • Mayonnaise (sub plain Greek yogurt) - 1/4 cup
  • Balsamic vinegar - 1 Tbsp
Tomatoes and Cucumber Salad:
  • Parsley - 3 Tbsp , chopped
  • Shallots - 1/2 bulb , diced
  • Tomatoes, cherry or grape - 1/2 pint , halved
  • Cucumbers - 12 oz , chopped
  • Vinegar, balsamic - 2 tsp
  • Olive oil - 4 tsp


  1. Slow cook chicken - This makes enough for tomorrow’s meal. Dice tomatoes. Mix together Italian seasonings, dried basil, salt, and black pepper. Cover chicken in seasonings and transfer to slow cooker and cover with tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. Once done, shred chicken, remove bones and skin, and let it sit in the liquid for at least 15 minutes. It’ll get a lot more flavor that way. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  2. Parsley / Shallots - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  3. Make balsamic mayo - Mince garlic. Combine garlic with mayo and balsamic vinegar. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  4. Tomatoes / Cucumbers - Prep as directed.
