Greek Chicken Gyros Recipe Wraps

I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious these Greek wraps taste. Greek tzatziki, juicy marinated chicken breasts, fresh tomatoes, and onions all wrapped together in pita flatbreads to create a flavorful explosion in your mouth! You will absolutely be going to LOOOVE them once you try them.

And trust me, this Chicken Gyro Recipe is easier than it looks to put together. When you hear Gyro don’t think about the one you buy on the street.

The homemade version of it is as simple as marinating some chicken breasts with a few spices and roast it in the oven. You then cut it in strips and wrap it inside pita flatbreads along with the rest of the ingredients.

This version is also fried-potato-free so I guess I can safely say that it’s also a healthier chicken gyro recipe.

What Is Gyros?
Many people wonder what’s the difference between Gyros and Souvlaki. Well, Gyros is originally meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie that turns around slowly in front of an electric broiler while Souvlaki is pieces of meat threaded on skewers and cooked mostly on fire.

Gyros is usually served inside Pita flatbreads along with Tzatziki, potato fries, tomato, and onion slices.

And as for me, I finally managed to open my laptop after almost a month of being really busy.

Sorry for not receiving any newsletter or not seeing any new recipes it’s almost impossible for me to do so with the amount of work I currently have.

But I will make up for you as soon as we close our restaurant for the season. I hope you all have a lovely summer and go ahead and try my Chicken Gyros Recipe!
