Tonight, for dinner, I made Chicken Gyros. Healthy, flavorful and delicious!
I took boneless chicken cubes, and marinated it with: black pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, yogurt and lemon juice. I cooked it over low heat for about an hour. In the last few minutes, I turn the heat up to high [while closely watching it] in order to let the chicken soak up any of the liquid left [that’s added flavor right there!]. After letting the chicken cool for a bit, either slice or dice the chicken.
For the [tzatziki] sauce: to yogurt, I added diced cucumbers, a little black pepper and garlic powder, lemon juice, and parsley. Tzatziki sauce is what you typically find in gyros.
Finally, to put it together: I took my [homemade] naan and to it I added a layer of chopped Romaine lettuce, the chicken, the sauce, and diced tomatoes on top. Wrap it like a gryo, and you are good to go!
