Greek Chicken Gyros are easy, flavorful, make ahead and healthy – winning! The combination of juicy Greek lemon chicken, creamy cucumber dill tzatziki, fresh crisp veggies, and tangy feta wrapped in warm pita bread is out of this world.

While the chicken marinates, you can prep the tzatziki and chop the veggies, so all you have to do is cook the chicken at dinner time. These chicken gyros are excellent for meal prep, make ahead lunch/dinners, entertaining and leftovers – instructions included.

Ingredients

For the chicken marinade:

  • 1 lb. chicken breast sliced into ½-inch strips
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

For the Tzatziki Sauce:

  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1 medium clove garlic pressed or minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

For the Gyro:

  • Pita bread
  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Sliced onion
  • Feta cheese

Instructions

  1. Marinate the chicken. Place the chicken in a medium bowl and add all of the marinade ingredients. Mix it well, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  2. Make the tzatziki. Grate the cucumber and squeeze the excess liquid out with your hands.
    Discard the liquid. Place the cucumber in a mixing bowl with the rest of the tzatziki ingredients and mix well.
  3. Cook the chicken. Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken slices and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Slice the chicken into thin strips.
  4. Make the Gyro! Warm the pita bread (in the oven or microwave). Add a bit of shredded lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, and chicken on top. Drizzle with a generous amount of tzatziki and feta cheese, if desired. Fold the gyro* in half and serve.
