Chicken "Gyro" Burgers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dessertyummy

I call these gyro burgers because I used a recipe for beef gyro burgers as the inspiration to create this version. These are in no way authentic Greek food, however, they are absolutely delicious!

I had some dill dip to use up and went on the hunt for recipes to use. I found your recipe and knew my family would love them. I was right. These little beauties were flavorful and delicious. We loved them. I plan on making the dip now just for this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1.) Place ground chicken in a bowl, along with the garlic, onion, Italian seasoning, 1 TBSP olive oil and lemon juice.
  2. 2.) Here, I mix everything up with my hands, and form this mixture into 4 patties. You can feel free to mix with a spoon if you prefer before forming them into patties by hand.
  3. 3.) Place a small amount (about 1-2 TBSP) of olive oil in a frying pan. Once the pan is hot, place patties into the pan (I suggest using a larger frying pan if doing them all at once, so they're not touching too much during cooking).
  4. 4.) Keep a close eye on these and flip as needed, as they will cook quickly.
  5. 5.) While these patties are cooking, warm the pitas in the oven or microwave. Once warmed, spread a small amount of dill dip (or your condiment of choice) on the pita.
  6. 6.) Once the patties are cooked, place a patty on one side of each pita, and top patties with a slice of tomato and lettuce. Close the pita together, making a "roll" of sorts for your chicken burger.
  7. 7.) Enjoy!
