I only used the chicken season portion of this recipe. It is Wonderful!! (Would work well with chicken fajitas as well.) I tried it with another tzatziki sauce recipe I had, but I'll probably try this tzatziki recipe next time. I'm not a big fan of romaine lettuce, so I used baby spinach in my gyro. Then I made a salad out of the leftover chicken for lunch the next day--Great leftovers! And Great with or without tzatziki sauce.
I also just made the chicken and with the tzatziki sauce and it was terrific! The spices are perfectly paired with this, and I can see using this recipe a lot during the summer, because it is so easy and so tasty~ I used a hot paprika, which was the perfect accent for the chicken..

I didn't make the fries - just the chicken and tzatziki sauce. Flavor was fantastic. We ate these on low carb tortillas with lettuce, tomato and green onion. Will make this part of the normal rotation.
This was my first attempt at gyros and this recipe is great! Super yummy! We included the fries and it really did add something to recipe. The flavors and textures work together great. Will definitely make again.. :)
Great taste and easy to put together. I also skipped the fries, but the rest of the meal was hardy and good.
I omitted the fries. I added a bit of olive oil to the chicken marinade and let it chill for a few hours. I was so surprised at the wonderful flavour with so little seasonings. Definite keeper Made for PAC Fall 2009
This was a very yummy recipe and diet friendly (if you skip out on the fries). I also went a little heavier on the spices. My sauce turned out a little runny and not as creamy as I would prefer, probably due to the fact that my grocery store only carries fat free plain yogurt... However I added a couple of spoonfuls of light mayo and that helped it out quite a bit. I will be using this recipe often.
This was a very good base recipe and we've eaten it 2 days in a row now, my family loves it! We used dark chicken meat, skipped the potatoes all together, and were a little more generous with the spices all around. We didn't have plain paprika, so I used a mild cajun-type season we had on had, which worked wonderfully. I did add a little mayo and lemon juice to the sauce, just a personal preference. Served this up on homemade flatbread, YUM!
