I really love Greek food, and one of my favourite slow cooker recipes is my Greek Chicken recipe. 

It has all the flavour of a succulent gyros. I usually serve it with salad and in a pitta bread or wrap. I sometimes have some left over, so wanted to come up with a tasty new dish to use up the leftovers.

I love a one pot dish, so this Greek rice dish is the creation I came up with. Some tasty veg, stodgy rice and lots of yummy Greek flavours. 

I added some olives, which are usually 1.5 syns for 8. I used small slices and this dish serves for, so the syns are almost too small to mention. If you're eating all to yourself, then maybe add some syns!!

I added all the ingredients and left it to simmer. It came out sooo tasty. I posted it onto my Facebook page and loads of you wanted the recipe. I served this with some salad and halloumi as my Healthy Extra.
