EASY CHICKEN GYROS

New Year, New Lunch Recipe!

The original recipe is here; I made a few adjustments! 🙂 Enjoy


Grocery List

  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 1 tablespoon mediterranean seasoning (you can substitute Italian seasoning in a pinch)
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 4 pitas (this is a Greek-style flatbread you can find at almost any grocery store near the bread and tortillas or in the bakery)
  • optional: lettuce, feta cheese crumbles
Tzatziki Sauce
  • 1/2 English cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup 1/3 cup chopped dill, fresh
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of 1/2 medium lemon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

How to make it

  • Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor (see note). Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate)
  • Season chicken breasts with mediterranean seasoning. Cook in a large skillet or pan over medium heat 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Cut into strips.
  • Lay pitas on a clean surface. Add lettuce (if desired, chicken, red pepper strips, and onions. Top with tzatziki sauce and feta (if desired). Fold pita over like a sandwich, or roll it into a “tunnel shape”.
