Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce
Adapted from Closet Cooking
- 3/4 cucumber, peeled and seeded
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- 1 tsp of oregano
- 1 small handful of parsley
- 1 container of Greek yogurt
- Salt & pepper to taste
Combine cucumber, juice/zest of lemon, garlic, and salt and pepper in a food processor. Process until combined and cucumber has more a of a liquid texture. Spoon Greek yogurt into a small bowl and add the cucumber mixture. Fold/stir cucumber mixture with Greek yogurt until combined.
- 1 package of boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins
- 1/2 container of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 handful of Parsley
- 1 tsp of oregano
- Juice and zest from 1 lemon
- 2-3 cloves of garlic (depends on how garlicky you like your food)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Pita bread
- Sliced tomatoes
- Shredded lettuce
Combine Greek yogurt, parsley, oregano, lemon juice/zest, garlic and salt and pepper in a food processor. Process until everything is combined and marinade is made. Place chicken breasts in large Ziploc bag with marinade and mix until chicken is completely coated. Let marinade in fridge 8-10 hours, or overnight. Remove chicken from marinade and cut into bite size pieces (you can do this after you cook the chicken too but I prefer to cook it as smaller pieces because it cooks faster). Heat a grill pan/frying pan over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add chicken and cook 2-3 min per side.
If desired, place pita bread in oven. Once warmed, remove from oven and assemble gryos. Place chicken, lettuce, tomato on gyro and drizzle with tzatziki sauce. Stuff your face and enjoy!
That’s all the nonsense I have for now!
