If you haven’t tried a homemade Chicken Gyro yet, you are missing out! Fresh vegetables, tender chicken, tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese make an unforgettable combination! You’ll love it from the first bite.

Let’s start with the basics.

A Gyro is a Greek sandwich traditionally made using lamb, beef, or pork combined with tomato, onion, and a yogurt sauce on pita bread. In Greece, Gyros are a popular street food. A proper gyro is made with meat that is cooked on a slowly-rotating, vertical spit in front of an upright rotisserie.

For the chicken marinade:
1 lb. chicken breast sliced into ½-inch strips
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
For the Tzatziki Sauce:
1 medium cucumber
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill
1 medium clove garlic pressed or minced
¼ teaspoon salt
For the Gyro:
Pita bread
Shredded iceberg lettuce
Sliced tomatoes
Sliced cucumbers
Sliced onion
Feta cheese

Marinate the chicken. Place the chicken in a medium bowl and add all of the marinade ingredients. Mix it well, cover with plastic wrap, and marinate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Make the tzatziki. Grate the cucumber and squeeze the excess liquid out with your hands. Discard the liquid. Place the cucumber in a mixing bowl with the rest of the tzatziki ingredients and mix well.
Cook the chicken. Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken slices and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Slice the chicken into thin strips.
Make the Gyro! Warm the pita bread (in the oven or microwave). Add a bit of shredded lettuce, tomato, cucumber, onion, and chicken on top. Drizzle with a generous amount of tzatziki and feta cheese, if desired. Fold the gyro* in half and serve.
