Crockpot Chicken Gyros

A few years ago (ok...more than a few) my parents took me and my husband to their favorite little Italian place in Virginia and they recommended their Gyros.  It was my first time trying one, and since then I have been obsessed.  They are such a yummy fresh mix of flavors.  So I finally got brave and decided to make them at home.  Turns out they are not difficult to make at all!
