Greek Chicken Gyros recipe
It’s been a while considering that I made this Greek hen Gyros. however, the minute the bird hit the grill, all I ought to assume became “Why don’t I make this more regularly??”
The odor is high-quality. you could without a doubt smell garlic and oregano. you know the way on occasion you upload herbs into matters and you can’t flavor it? Or you may, however, it’s a very subtle flavor. genuinely not the case with this!!

Greek Chicken Gyros Marinade ingredients
Here’s what you need for the marinade. There’s plenty of garlic and dried oregano. plenty!!
Yogurt is a mystical marinade – it’s a super flavor carrier and tenderizes the hen!
Yogurt is the name of the game ingredient in this recipe. The acid in the yogurt breaks down the fibers so it not only softens the chicken but additionally enables the marinade surely infuse into the flesh.
Plus, the yogurt makes this marinade “paste-like” so it stays slathered at the chook while you prepare dinner (not like many marinades which might be skinny). so you have greater flavor oomph!

(Few extra of my preferred large layout ingredients, DIY style, include: fowl or beef / Lamb Doner kebabs, fowl Shawarma and Lamb Shawarma, and Vietnamese chook Noodle Bowls).
What to serve on the side
I serve Greek chicken Gyros as an entire meal in itself because there’s a decent quantity of tomato and cucumber used to stuff internally.
in case you desired to reinforce the fresh greens, a big fat juicy Greek Salad might be terrifically on topic! For something more massive, especially if you’re making Gyros for a set, do that Greek Lemon Orzo Salad properly.
And even though not mainly a Greek-fashion salad, this Cucumber Salad with Garlic & Herb Dressing OR this Creamy Cucumber Salad with Lemon Yogurt Dressing could move down a deal with this Gyros. I additionally provide a Greek take on my recipe for Roasted Pumpkin with Yogurt Sauce and Pine Nuts (see Customisations thoughts section) that might be a splendid associate with the Gyros.
in case you’re wanting to impress, make Gyros the usage of your very personal self-made flatbread wraps. They’re clean and they’re made without yeast!!
