There have been a few times recently that I’ve had some major fails in the kitchen. Normally I’m a really good cook – but I have my moments when I mess things up. But tonight I felt like I redeemed myself with these homemade chicken gyros! It’s such a simple meal, almost fool-proof really. I’ve made these a few times and each time I love them more and more. Such a quick and easy meal to make after a long day at work.
Homemade Chicken Gyros
1 chicken breast
2 slices of flatbread pita
1/2 cup diced cucumbers
1/2 cup diced tomatoes [I used tomatoes on the vine]
4 tbs tzatziki Sauce
Season chicken breast with salt, pepper and a little bit of olive oil. Brown both sides of the chicken in a hot skillet (approx. 5 minutes per side) & then let it finish cooking in the oven at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes. Let the chicken rest for approx. 5 minutes before thinly slicing with a sharp knife. (This is my absolute favorite way to cook chicken; it turns out so juicy – never dry).
Spread tzatzkiki sauce down the middle of the flatbread pita, top with sliced chicken, diced cucumbers & diced tomatoes.
Fold over and enjoy!
