All I can say is OMGoodness!!!!

This was soooo I'm wiping the drool from my chin! You must run to the store, buy all the ingredients and make this ASAP! I snagged this recipe from Carrie over at her blog and it was a HUGE hit at my house! Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe Carrie!!! LOVED IT!

As you all know by now, I'm not quite the photographer as Kathy and her hubby are! Me and my little Nikon do the best we can. So the pics really don't do this justice!

I had to post a picture of the chicken too since you really couldn't see it underneath all that awesome goodness!!!

Chicken Gyros

Chicken Souvlaki Ingredients
1 pound chicken breast (cut into chunks)
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 lemon (juice and zest)
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Salad) Ingredients
1 1/3 (6 ounce) containers Greek yogurt
1 cucumber (peeled, seeded, and shredded, squeezed and drained)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 lemon (juiced)
1/2 tablespoon chopped dill
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
salt and pepper to taste

Gyros Ingredients
4 large pita bread rounds
1 head of lettuce (cut into 1/4 inch slices)
1 red onion (thinly sliced), (I sauteed mine in a little olive oil on the stove)
1 tomato (halved and sliced)

Chicken Souvlaki Directions
Combine all ingredients, skewer the meat, and let meat marinate for 30 minutes to overnight.

Cook on the grill or under a broiler for about 4-5 minutes per side.

Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Salad) Directions
Stir together yogurt, cucumber, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill and garlic until well-combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour for best flavor.

Gyros Directions
To assemble gyros just warm the pitas. Top with Chicken Souvlaki, Tzatziki, diced tomatoes, lettuce, and sliced onions! Then chow down!! YUMMO!!

Let me know if you give it a try!!

I can't take credit for the recipe because it's a standard Greek gyro recipe, but isn't it delicious!! The Tzatziki sauce stays good for days, it's so yummy!!!
I am so glad your family enjoyed it as much as we do!

We usually do this with pork - I'll have to try the chicken!!! We haven't had this in awhile and how perfect with our warmer weather!!!
