Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 whole wheat pita bread
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Tzatziki sauce for serving

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the chicken. In a bowl, combine Greek yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Add chicken breasts to the marinade, ensuring they are well-coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the marinated chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side or until cooked through and slightly charred. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.
  3. Warm the whole wheat pita bread on the grill for a minute or so on each side.
  4. Assemble your gyros by placing a generous portion of the grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and red onion onto each pita bread. Drizzle with tzatziki sauce.
  5. Roll up the pita bread, enclosing the filling, and serve your Healthy Greek Gyros immediately.
