30 MINUTE CHICKEN GYROS WITH TZATZIKI


30 MINUTE CHICKEN GYROS WITH TZATZIKI



I like to use chicken strips because smaller pieces of chicken = more surface area for the spices, herbs, and liquids to coat. Since there’s no time for hours-long marination with this recipe, I use a heavy hand of seasonings and bright lemon juice on the chicken. I let it sit as I mix together the tzatziki ingredients, and then cook the chicken in a very hot grill pan for a few minutes on each side. If it sounds super simple, that’s because it is. Remember, these are 30 Minute Chicken Gyros we’re talking about here!
