These gyros were my first venture into Greek cuisine. They were easy to throw together on a weeknight and tasted great. From Elly Says Opa.
1.25 lbs. chicken pieces (breast or thighs)
4 cloves garlic, smashed
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 heaping Tbsp. plain yogurt
1 Tbsp. dried oregano
salt and pepper
Whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, yogurt, and oregano in a bowl. Add the chicken and rub the marinade in. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
Preheat grill pan over medium heat and cook until done. Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
Heat the pitas. Top the pitas with the chicken, tzatziki, tomatoes, onions. Fold and enjoy!
