Chicken Gyros for 2

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

Tender marinated chicken and a creamy cucumber yogurt sauce tucked into a pita, topped with lettuce and tomato if you like. Sounds like a great lunch to me! Cooked in or outside! Note: time to make does NOT include 1 hour marinating time. from TOH... ZWT Greek and US Regional - East Coast

Did not like this at all. Chicken was too lemony, and the sauce was too bitter.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine lemon juice, oil, 1/2 t of the garlic, mustard and oregano in a gallon zip top plastic bag.
  2. Add chicken and seal bag.
  3. Turn bag and gently move chicken around to distribute marinade evenly.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  5. In a small bowl combine cucumber, yogurt, dill and remaining garlic. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (NOTE: Cucumbers have a lot of moisture in them so if you want your sauce to be less runny really drain them well and squeeze the water out if you want.).
  6. Drain chicken, discarding marinade.
  7. In a large nonstick skillet saute the chicken for 7-8 minutes or until juices run clear.
  8. Spoon half the chicken on each pita and top with cucumber mixture and sliced onion.
  9. Lettuce and tomato may be added if you like.
  10. Fold in half and enjoy.
