  • 4 Pita Breads
  • 2 Chicken Breasts, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Cucumber, grated
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Parsley, chopped


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken slices with olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes to infuse the flavors.
  2. Preheat a grill pan over medium heat. Cook the marinated chicken until it’s golden brown and thoroughly cooked, approximately 5-6 minutes on each side.
  3. For the tzatziki sauce, in a separate bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, grated cucumber, minced garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Set this aside for later.
  4. Warm the pita breads slightly in the oven or on the grill pan, about a minute on each side, to make them pliable.
  5. To assemble the gyros, spread a generous amount of tzatziki sauce on each pita bread. Layer on the chicken slices, tomato, red onion, crumbled feta, and parsley.
  6. Carefully roll the pita around the fillings. Serve the gyros immediately while everything is still warm and delicious.

Prep Time: 40 minutes (including marination) | Cooking Time: 12 minutes | Total Time: 52 minutes | Servings: 4


These gyros are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store any leftover components separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat the chicken and assemble the gyros just before serving for the best taste and texture.

Recipe Tips:

  • Feel free to customize your gyro with additional toppings like olives, bell peppers, or even a drizzle of olive oil for extra flavor.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, consider adding a pinch of red pepper flakes to the chicken marinade for a hint of heat.
  • You can also grill the pita bread for a few seconds after assembling the gyro for a warm and slightly crispy texture.

Enjoy your delicious Greek Chicken Gyros! Bon appétit!
