Chicken Gyros

On our very first date, Brian and I went rollerblading (and I fell down a hill and almost got a concussion. Klassy, I tell you) then we went out to dinner at Brian's favorite hangout and I, being a girl on a first date, debated ordering a teeny tiny side salad. Thankfully, I instead decided on a chicken gyro and the rest, as they say, is history. Perhaps it was my superb ordering skills that hooked him :)



1.25 lbs chicken breast
4 cloves garlic, crushed
juice of 1 lemon
2 t. red wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
2 heaping T plain yogurt
1 T oregano
salt and pepper
sliced tomato
sliced red onion
4 pitas- pocketless


In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, yogurt, and oregano. Add in the chicken pieces and marinate for an hour in the fridge.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, then pan-fry the chicken over medium heat until chicken is cooked through. Let the chicken sit for a few minutes before slicing.

While chicken is cooking, heat the pita in the oven. Once heated, top with chicken, tzatziki (I used garlic feta dip instead), tomato, lettuce, and onion and enjoy!
