You won't believe how easy it is to turn out this Greek restaurant and festival favorite at home. Our delicious Chicken Gyros topped with traditional cucumber-yogurt sauce can be on your table in no time.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chunked
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 (6-inch) pitas, cut in half
  • 2 cups sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
What To Do:
  1. In a food processor or blender, lightly pulse yogurt, sour cream, cucumber, dill, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper, leaving mixture chunky. Refrigerate until ready to use.
     
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sprinkle chicken with remaining salt, pepper, and the oregano. Add chicken to skillet, and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until no pink remains and juices run clear. Pour remaining lemon juice over chicken about 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time; remove from pan and let cool slightly.
     
  3. Cut chicken into strips. Open each pita pocket and, distributing evenly, fill with lettuce, tomato, and chicken. Top with cucumber sauce, and serve.

Sounds delish !! Having company this week .....going to try this ! Thanks

Delicious!! Simple & a nice change of pace. I used flatbread warmed in a skillet instead of pita bread...quite tasty! Just folded it like a taco. Also used Greek yogurt. Will make again!

Sounds wonderful! We will try it over the 4th of July!

I love Greek food and am anxious to try this recipe, but have to wait until I can get all the ingredients at a nearby town.
