Easy chicken gyro

Damn this was good! This easy chicken gyro recipe from Suzy at The Mediterranean Dish was super easy and super tasty! It’s been a long time since my last gyro and I’m happy to say this one didn’t disappoint!

Chicken marinating in a bag

Suzy’s marinade was spot on and I think a big reason why the chicken was so tender. I followed it to a T (well, everything except the ground coriander) and marinated it for about 3 hours and it was definitely spot on!

Once the chicken was ready, I put a little avocado oil in the pan and started frying it up. Cooked it for about 4-5 minutes a side and it was just right.

Cooked chicken in a bowl

There’s not a whole lot to this recipe, so once the chicken was cooked, I set it aside in a bowl and started getting the pita ready to complete the gyro.

Whole wheat pitas in a bag

I used these whole wheat pitas from Trader Joe’s. Just another way to make a healthy recipe even healthier!

Heat the pita for a few minutes and spread some Tzatziki on it.

Avocado tzatziki dip

I know Suzy likes to make her own Tzatziki, but I just used this store-bought Avocado Tzatziki Dip from Trader Joe’s. Probably not at good as the homemade stuff, but pretty damn good for a substitute.

Then add your cooked chicken.

Is chicken gyro healthy?

I’m no expert, but…yeah it is! It depends on what you put in and on your gyro but typically a chicken gyro with veggies is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber to name a few. Being able to control the ingredients by making a chicken gyro at home is always the way to go if you want to ensure you’re eating a healthy chicken gyro.

Jarred kalamata olives

Now add the rest of your desired toppings. I went with tomato, red onion, cucumber, and Kalamata olives. Wrap it all up (as best as you can) and enjoy!
