Flatbread options: If you'd like to serve this recipe as mini, personal tacos for a fun dinner or as appetizer-sized party tacos, we recommend using Flatout Foldits. Cut each Foldit in half to form perfectly sized mini soft taco shells. Alternately, if you'd like to serve larger, heartier-sized soft tacos, try using Flatout wraps – we found that the ProteinUP Roasted Red Pepper and Light Italian Herb varieties had flavors that paired nicely with the Mediterranean ingredients in this recipe.
Make-ahead tips: Because you're using your slow cooker, you begin the chicken hours ahead of serving it. In addition, though, you can also cook it even a day or two ahead, then refrigerate it after cooking and reheat it for serving. You can also prepare and chop all of the toppings up to a day or two ahead. Store each topping, wrapped separately, in the refrigerator.
Cook time and slow cooker variations: Through all of our testing, we've found that slow cooker chicken recipes like this one typically work best in a 3-4 quart slow cooker. If you’re using a larger 5-6 quart model, we recommend cooking on low for only about 6 hours. We do not recommend cooking this recipe on high in a 5-6 quart slow cooker because the chicken may overcook and become dry. At the end of cook time, the chicken should be cooked through and should shred easily and be really moist. Also, note that the exact heat and speed of cooking can vary between different slow cookers. Our research has also led us to believe that some models allow for imperceptible evaporation of liquid (although you’d expect that no liquid would be lost when using a slow cooker), which can leave your recipes less saucy and moist. Because this particular recipe uses very little liquid, it’s particularly sensitive to these variations. No need to worry – it’s delicious even when cooked until it’s a bit drier.
