  • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup 2% plain Greek yoghurt
  • 1½ Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3-ounce strips (approximate)
Tzatziki:
  • ½ English cucumbers, peeled and seeds scraped out
  • 1¼ cups 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ tsp salt and black pepper, to taste
  • ⅓ cup crumbled feta
  • 6 pita bread
Instructions
  1. Prepare marinade for chicken by placing garlic, vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, yogurt, oregan, salt, and pepper in a gallon-sized ziplock bag. Seal and shake/massage contents to combine. Place chicken (~12, 3-oz pieces) into the bag and turn to coat chicken on all sides. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to 400-450 degrees F. Grill chicken 4-6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove and allow to rest for 4-5 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the tzatziki by combining all the ingredients for the sauce in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  4. To serve the gyros, mix together the diced tomato, cucumber, and red onion with the salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  5. To assemble, place 2 piece of chicken in each pita, topping with tzatziki, tomato salad, and ~1 tablespoon crumbled feta.
