Easy Chicken Gyros

Marinated chicken breast strips are broiled, wrapped with a warm pita, and topped with a creamy tzatziki sauce and fresh veggies.

Ingredients
  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
  • 1 tablespoon mediterranean seasoning (you can substitute Italian seasoning in a pinch)
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, 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
    • ½ English cucumber, peeled and diced
    • 2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
    • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
    • ⅓ cup chopped dill, fresh or frozen (may sub 2 tablespoons dried dill)
    • 1½ Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of ½ medium lemon)
    • ½ tsp salt, or to taste
    • ⅛ tsp black pepper
Instructions
  1. Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor (see note below recipe first!). 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)
  2. 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.
  3. 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”.
