We love everything about this gyro. It has all the components of your favourite Greek take-out spot but made from scratch & in a flash. Here we stack savoury chicken strips onto warm pita. A chopped cucumber & tomato salad with cilantro & a crunch element, either on top or on the side. Our favourite part is the garlicky yogurt sauce that brings a cool creaminess & a ton of flavour to the table.

Step 1: Roast Potatoes
Add potatoes to bowl with lemon juice. Add ½ chopped garlic, lemon zest, drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper and toss well. Spread evenly on sheet pan and roast for 15 – 20 minutes until cooked through.
Step 2: Make Salad & Prepare Garnishes
In a medium bowl add cucumbers, tomatoes and dressing; toss to coat and set aside. Chop cilantro and set aside. Empty garlic sauce into a small bowl and mix well using a fork. If you desire the sauce to be runnier, add a splash of water and continue to mix until it reaches your desired consistency.
Step 3: Season Chicken
In a medium bowl combine chicken, Greek spice/flour blend, remaining chopped garlic and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Toss to coat chicken.
Step 4: Cook Chicken & Onions
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add onions and cook, stirring, until softened, 2–3 minutes. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes.
Step 5: Toast Pitas & Serve
Place pitas directly on center oven rack and toast until soft, about 1 minute per side, watching closely so it doesn’t burn.
Layer lettuce, chicken and salad on pita. Drizzle with garlic sauce and sprinkle cilantro on top. Serve with roasted potatoes and enjoy!
