Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Chicken Thighs Boneles, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 tsp Oregano Dries
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • Salt And Black Pepper To taste
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil

  • 150 g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 Cucumber Diced
  • 1 Tomato Diced

  • In a bowl, combine minced garlic, dried oregano, paprika, ground cumin, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Add the thinly sliced chicken thighs to the bowl and coat them thoroughly with the marinade. Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the marinated chicken slices and cook for approximately 5-7 minutes until they are fully cooked and have a lovely golden brown hue.
  • While the chicken is cooking, gently warm the pitta breads in a dry skillet or in the oven until they become slightly toasted.
  • In a small bowl, combine Greek yogurt with a pinch of salt.
  • To assemble the gyros, generously spread Greek yogurt onto each pitta bread. Add the cooked chicken slices, diced cucumber, tomato, and thinly sliced red onion.
  • Finish by garnishing with fresh mint leaves and serving with lemon wedges on the side.
  • Roll up the pitta breads to enclose the filling, and enjoy your delicious chicken gyro!
