I love take out and fast food. One thing I enjoy even more is street food. That’s why chicken gyros are one of my all time favourites. That wonderfully seasoned chicken combined with the fresh toppings and wrapped in flat pita bread is simply out of this world. You don’t have to be on the street or ordering fast food to have the delicious wraps, however. Believe it or not you can make them simply and easily in the comfort of you own home in about 30 minutes. Even more good news is that most of the ingredients you will have right in your pantry and lurking in the fridge.
Chicken Gyros – The ultimate comfort food
So many people don't realize the chicken gyros are so simple and easy to make. As a matter of fact, they can be made up in about 30 minutes. This recipe uses ingredients you will have in your own spice rack and in your fridge. Make them up today and your family and friends will simply love them.
Topping for the Gyros
Add the chicken strips to a mixing bowl followed by the seasoning ingredients. Mix until well combined and the chicken is coated. Set aside for a few minutes. You can also marinate for a few hours or overnight for best results.
Place the chicken strips onto a grill or into a pan over medium high heat. Fry until golden brown and cooked through.
Heat the pita bread in a frying pan. Lay them out on a flat surface. Spread some tzatziki sauce over the top. Placed the chicken over the top followed by some lettuce, cucumber, onion, and tomato. Fold both ends toward the centre.
Serve and enjoy your chicken gyros.

As always, you can adjust the seasoning according to your liking. You can also add and omit seasoning if you wish.
I use boneless skinless chicken breast but size can be used as well as they're a bit juicier.
The same rule applies to the toppings. Add, omit, or change what you wish.
