Happy Sunday everyone,
I feel in love with chicken gyros about 7 years ago, when my Husband was a manager at a Greek restaurant. I would go most lunchtimes and take advantage of the free food. When done properly they are moist and flavourful, a perfect quick after work dinner.
- Chicken breasts
- 2 garlic cloves
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 4 tbsp Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp oilve oil
- 1 red pepper, cut into chunks
- 1 red onion, quartered
To marinate the chicken I use a plastic zip lock bag. I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and place in the bag, along with the garlic cloves finely chopped, lemon juice, dried oregano, greek yogurt and olive oil along with a pinch of salt and pepper. I leave to marinate over night if possible.
Cook the chicken under a high grill for 5-7 minutes each side, along with the pepper and onion.
I serve this with some pitta breads.
