Fancy Greek Gyros Wraps
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.
Make marinade first by stirring together all of the ingredients for the marinade.
Add chicken to the marinade, toss to coat, cover tightly, and chill for at least 30 minutes
While chicken is marinating, stir together all ingredients for the cucumber salad. Set aside.
While chicken is marinating, make the tazatiziki salad. When grating the cucumber, take paper towel and ensure all the water is strained. Then, stir together Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, dill, salt, and pepper. Taste, add salt and pepper if needed. Refrigerate until needed.
Use tongs to transfer marinated chicken to a preheated cooking surface (grill or skillet) and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side over medium heat until cooked through. Once finished cooking, let cool 1-2 minutes and chop into slices.
Arrange the pitas on a plate or clean surface. Assemble the pitas by filling pita bread with chicken, cucumber salad, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce.
Fold the pita over like a sandwich or roll it up. Enjoy!
Notes: The chicken will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, or you can freeze it in an airtight container/Ziplock bag for up to 3 months. Thaw and/or reheat the chicken in the microwave for a minute at a time until just heated through.
