Greek  Chicken Gyros



25 minutes

4 servings


Chicken Gyro Marinade –  chicken thighs  –  greek yogurt  –  olive oil – garlic  – lemon juice – red wine vinegar – oregano – sea salt – pepper 

TZATZIKI Sauce – cucumber – greek yogurt – olive oil – lemon juice – dill chopped – garlic – salt and pepper

Gyro – bread or lavash bread – tomatoes cubed – red onion s – lettuce sliced – feta cheese

Step 1

Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl or ziploc bag with the chicken and marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 2

Grill the marinated chicken on high heat for a few minutes per side or when the chicken is cooked through. Slice the chicken into strips.

Step 3

Make the tzatziki sauce by combining the grated cucumber and the rest of the sauce ingredients in a bowl. Stir together, then place it in the fridge to chill for at least 15 minutes.

Step 4

Assemble the gyro wraps by spreading tzatziki onto the pita. Next, layer on the sliced chicken, lettuce, and tomatoes. Garnish with feta and anything else you like and enjoy!

– I recommend marinating the chicken for at least 4 hours but overnight will give you the best results. Remember to keep it in the fridge as it marinates!

To store the leftover chicken, keep it wrapped tightly in plastic or foil wrap or in an airtight container in the fridge. It should stay fresh for around 3 or 4 days.
