Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzaziki



Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzaziki

 

 

The marinade for the chicken for this Greek Chicken Gyros is SO GOOD that I use it even when I’m not making Greek Chicken Gyros. Make this once, and I think you’ll be as obsessed with it as I am! The marinade is made with yoghurt, lemon, garlic and oregano – classic Greek ingredients that infuses the chicken with flavour AND tenderises it.
