View Full Version : ISO Greek Chicken Gyro recipe
04-07-2005, 08:45 PM
I saw Alton Brown yesterday where he made Lamb Gyros. We REALLY like gyros and chicken gyros are our favorite. I did a search and found Angela's Turkey Gyros which the BB raved about so I'm looking forward to trying those. But does anyone have a recipe for chicken gyros? I'd like to try making those too. TIA

I did a search and came up with this for you. The notes and suggestions are not mine but the writer's. Hope you this helps.
Cut boneless, skinless chick breast into strips (or use pre-cut tenders). Marinate in olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, cumin, garlic, salt & pepper, fresh dill and fresh mint - overnight. Grill tenders until just done.
Drain plain yogurt overnight (I use a coffee filter set over a bowl). Peel and seed a cuke(s), and mix with yogurt, fresh, chopped garlic, some of the fresh dill and mint. Let set for a few hours or more.
Wrap chicken and sauce in warmed pitas-enjoy!
Note:We love dill and mint-if your family's not big on those herbs, you can leave them out or use just in the sauce. You can also skewer the chicken alternating chunks of onions, peppers and cherry tomatoes and grill

I don't have an actual recipe but this is what I do....
You can use pita bread or we personally like a flat bread that can sometimes be difficult to find ( http://www.kangaroobrands.com/products.htm#flat_bread).
Then we use grilled boneless chicken breasts (or use leftover chicken). We usually will marinade in lemon juice, garlic, and oregano.
Add lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers, or whatever you like.
Then find a recipe for Tsatziki (spelled several ways). There are ALOT of variations and unfortunately I lost the recipe that I love, so I'm looking for a new one myself. But there are hundreds of recipes all over the internet.

Thank you for these suggestions. They look great. We like both mint and dill so this looks perfect. We also prefer the flatbread over pita and luckily, I have it readily available. I've got Tzatziki recipes and Costco even sells a pretty tasty one too. :p
