    Northern Cook's Note:

    I've had this recipe for years and make this on a regular basis. It's pretty healthy and easy to make. It's a good lunch item or an easy weeknight meal. This is not a fancy meal by any means. It is just a good basic recipe to have on rotation. The original recipe came from a small cookbook you get in the check-out lane at the grocery store. I think the name of the book was Quick & Healthy Cooking.

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, cucumbers, scallions and half of the garlic. Cover and refrigerate.
    2. 2
      In another small bowl, stir together lemon juice, oregano, and the remaining garlic. Put lemon juice mixture in a ziplock bag with the chicken and let marinate for 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Wrap pitas in tin foil and place in 350 degree oven for approximately 5 minutes. I just leave in the oven until the chicken is done cooking.
    4. 4
      Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook until it is lightly browned on both sides and cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes. **OR** Grill chicken breasts over open flame for about 4-5 minutes per side. I always grill my chicken and it turns out great. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and cut into thin 2-inch long strips.
    5. 5
      Place a lettuce leaf and a quarter of the chicken on each pita bread. Top each with a tomato slice and some sliced red onions and a quarter of the yogurt mixture. Fold each pita around its filling and wrap each with foil to secure. Serve immediately with a side of the yogurt sauce for dipping.

      I love gyros and these were absolutley delicious. The marinade was very simple but gives the chicken such a wonderful flavor, I wish I would of had fresh oregano but I had run out so had to use the dried. Next time I would dice the cucumber even smaller to give a more smoother texture and I had used greek yogurt (my favorite for this) But the flavor was outstanding for the dip, I had actually made the dip the night before so the flavors could blend and it turned out great. This is a very quick meal to assemble so it is fantastic to have during the week. Makes for a very satisfying meal. I will be making this again often. Thanks so much for sharing Northern Cook.
