Chicken Gyros

May 26, 2011

Playing around on Pinterest the other day I saw a recipe for chicken gyros and realized how long it's been since I've made I've never blogged it!

Chicken Gyros:

1.5 lbs chicken
half onion-sliced
cucumber sliced & 1/4 cup set aside and minced
Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita
1 container Dannon Plain Greek Yogurt
Cavender's Greek Seasoning
Salt & Pepper
Cayenne Pepper
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 can of black olives-or better if you can find it

Cucumber yogurt sauce-
mix yogurt, minced cucumber, 2 tbsp chopped parsley, 1 tbsp garlic in a bowl and let sit in the fridge for at least one hour for the flavors to mix.

Olive tapenade-
chop olives, mix in 1 tbsp of garlic, and 3 tbsp of chopped parsley.

season with cayenne, salt, pepper, paprika, and Cavender's to taste. Grill until done and slice. 
How do you like those fancy plates and server ware? Jeremy has literally packed up everything except for what I am wearing this week, hence the paper plates and lame containers haha!

To assemble-
Cut pita in half, stuff with chicken, tomato, cucumber, and onion. Top with olives and yogurt sauce and feta.

**when I did the nutrition info I totally forgot the feta, I also ate halfway through my gyro before I realized I never put feta on it.

**Joseph's brand pita is a big factor in the calories for this recipe, one pita is only 60cal. If another brand is used adjust calories accordingly.
