Chicken Gyros and Tzatziki Sauce Recipe


CookingAddic Garlicky, oregano-laced,  chicken strips are piled on a pita, sauced with a classic yogurt Tzatziki, and garnished with chopped fresh veggies. I been putting off making pitas for a long time. Finally I decided to make em and these were a hit at my house. Kids really loved it! This Tzatziki Sauce is so good, I been adding it to my salads now. These are so easy to make. If you never made gyros, this is the time to make em.



     For pitas you will need:     


  • 3 Pita breads
  • 3 leafs of  Romaine lettuce
  • 1 Tomato cubed
  • 1/2 Sweet vidalia onion, thinly sliced
  • Cilantro {optional}
  • Tzatziki sauce {recipe included}


     Chicken recipe:


  • 1 1/2 cup grilled chicken breasts strips
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp fresh minced dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


                             

I used Costco pita bread.
To make the sauce: Peel cucumbers and mince em.



Mix all of the ingredients together and let sit for at least 30 min to hour before using
To make chicken: Melt butter in the skillet. Add chicken and heat it up. 
Add minced garlic.

Slice onion and cube the tomatoes.
Warm up 3 pita breads. Layer with the lettuce, chicken, tomato, red onion and tzatziki sauce.
