Let's get started!
You only need a few ingredients, and the olives and capers will last you for a few meals.
Place the chicken breasts in the slow cooker, sprinkle with some salt and pepper, add the olives and capers and pour the Greek dressing over. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
Just before you're ready to eat, cut up the cucumber, tomatoes and red onions, toss with some of the Greek dressing, and serve sprinkled with some crumbled Feta cheese.
Serve the chicken with some of the sauce, olives and capers spooned over it, along with the Greek salad.
