EASY CHICKEN GYROS

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
  • 1 tablespoon mediterranean seasoning (you can substitute Italian seasoning in a pinch)
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 pitas (this is a Greek-style flatbread you can find at almost any grocery store near the bread and tortillas or in the bakery)
  • optional: lettuce, feta cheese crumbles
tzatziki sauce
  • ½ English cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ⅓ cup chopped dill, fresh or frozen (may sub 2 tablespoons dried dill)
  • 1½ Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of ½ medium lemon)
  • ½ tsp salt, or to taste
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper

I use Trader Joes’ Tzatziki Creamy Garlic Cucumber Dip instead of making my own and it’s SO GOOD.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor (see note below recipe first!). Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate)
  2. Season chicken breasts with mediterranean seasoning. Cook in a large skillet or pan over medium heat 5-6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Cut into strips.
  3. Lay pitas on a clean surface. Add lettuce (if desired, chicken, red pepper strips, and onions. Top with tzatziki sauce and feta (if desired). Fold pita over like a sandwich, or roll it into a “tunnel shape”.

  • 2 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together turkey, breadcrumbs, eggs, green onions, garlic powder and salt/pepper until well combined. Shape mixture into 1½-inch balls (you’ll make roughly 40 balls) and place spaced apart on prepared baking sheets lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.
  4. While the meatballs are baking, combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking continuously. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes (the sauce will start to thicken) then toss with the meatballs.
  5. Serve immediately over brown rice and top with green onions and a few sesame seeds. Enjoy!
