Greek Chicken Gyros


Greek Chicken Gyros

The marinade for the chicken for this Greek Chicken Gyros recipe is SO GOOD that I use it even when I’m not making Gyros. Try it once, and I think you’ll be as obsessed with it as I am!


For the chicken marinade:

  • 1 pound chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Tzatziki sauce:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber, grated and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For serving:

  • 4 pita breads
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Fresh lettuce


Marinate the chicken:

In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Add chicken thighs and make sure they are well coated with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.

Prepare the Tzatziki sauce:

In another bowl, mix Greek yogurt, grated and drained cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, chopped dill, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate to let flavors meld.

Cook the chicken:

Heat a grill or skillet over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from the marinade and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side or until fully cooked and slightly charred. Remove from heat and let rest for a few minutes before slicing thinly.

Assemble the gyros:

Warm the pita breads on the grill or in a dry skillet. Place slices of cooked chicken on each pita, followed by slices of tomato, red onion, and a handful of lettuce.

Top each gyro with a generous dollop of tzatziki sauce.


Fold the pitas over the fillings or roll them up. Serve immediately while warm.
