Chicken Gyros

Recipe by Northern Cook
READY IN: 20mins




  • In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, cucumbers, scallions and half of the garlic. Cover and refrigerate.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
