Greek Gyros

These were fabulous. Such a burst of flavor. The only thing I would do differently next time is use my other Tzatziki recipe just because it is a little thicker...but the sauce was still great.Greek Gyros

From: Delectible Delights: A Second Helping of SAA Favorites

Chicken Marinade:
3-4 chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 fresh squeezed lemon
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. fresh oregano
fresh marjoram, to taste
dash salt and pepper

1 large red onion, diced or thinly sliced
2-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
2 Tbs. lemon juice
Pita Shells
Feta Cheese

Tzatziki Sauce:
1 cup plain yogurt
fresh dill, minced, to taste (I used quite a bit)
2 cloves garlic, minced
fresh squeezed lemon
1/2 English cucumber, grated (keep the skin on)

Marinate chicken for 45 minutes. (I almost never get a head start on dinner and didn't do this and it turned out great.

Saute onions, 2-4 cloves garlic, cumin, oregano, basil and lemon juice until the onion is almost clear. Add the chicken. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Combine Tzatziki ingredients in a mixing bowl. Line your pita shell with lettuce and sauce. Stuff with chicken and feta cheese.
