Chicken Gyros Recipe


If you enjoy Greek cuisine as much as I do, you are probably a fan of the Gyro. They are served at many popular restaurants through the United States and the rest of the world. Incase you are wondering, Gyros are a Greek dish consisting of meat, tomato, onion, and sauce on pita bread. The sauce, called tzatziki sauce uses ingredients such as cucumber, yogurt, sour cream, lemon juice and salt. If you are looking over the ingredient list you might notice is a rather lengthy. Some of the items such as olives, lettuce or tomato could be left out if you choose. I can’t say for sure but I believe this recipe is fairly authentic. This recipe uses chicken but lamb or beef could also be used. If you are looking to add some Greek cuisine to your menu, give this one a try. Enjoy.
