The marinade for the hen for this Greek Chicken Gyros recipe is SO GOOD that I use it even if I’m not making Gyros. Try it once, and I assume you’ll be as obsessed with it as I am!
Gyros marinade is made with yoghurt, lemon, garlic and oregano – vintage Greek ingredients that infuses the hen with flavour AND tenderises it. The odor when here's cooking is outrageous!
Greek Chicken Gyros recipe
It’s been ages since I made this Greek Chicken Gyros. But the minute the hen hit the grill, all I might assume was “why don’t I make this further often??”
The odor is incredible. You can REALLY odor garlic and oregano. You realize how in many instances you upload herbs into issues and also you can’t actually style it? Or you can, but it’s a actually delicate flavour. Definitely not the case with this!!
What is going in Gryos
Here are the parts that make up a Greek Chicken Gyros wrap:
- Marinated Greek Chicken
- Tomato Cucumber Salad
- Flatbread to roll up the gyros – or use smaller pita breads and simply fold them over
Greek Chicken Gyros Marinade ingredients
Here’s what you would like for the marinade. There’s LOTS of garlic and dried oregano. Lots!!
Yogurt is a magical marinade – it’s an important flavour service and tenderises the chicken!
Yogurt is the mystery aspect on this recipe. The acid within the yoghurt breaks down the fibres so it not only softens the hen but in addition allows the marinade actually infuse into the flesh.
Plus, the yoghurt makes this marinade “paste like” so it remains slathered at the hen if you train dinner it (unlike many marinades which are thin). So you've got further flavour oomph!
In the video, you’ll see that I train dinner this interior on a grill pan. But throughout the hotter months, here's a BBQ favourite!
What is going in Tzatziki for Greek Gyros
And here’s what is going within the tzatziki.
Greek Yogurt please! Or a minimum of Greek style which is what I typically use simply due to the fact it’s simply discovered at daily supermarkets. 🙂
How to make Greek Chicken Gyros
And onto the making part!! There are a couple of parts to Gryos – however the making facet is a cinch!
GREAT meal for teams – train ahead, make loads!
This Greek Chicken Gyros is a actually fab recipe for entertaining. Because it's actually quick to train and the men can BBQ whereas the ladies sip wine and chatter. (Joke joke JOKE!!!)
Then you possibly can simply lay everything out at the table. Why must you slave away, rolling up a gyros for everyone? Make ’em do it themselves!
What to serve at the side
I serve Greek Chicken Gyros as a entire meal in itself simply due to the fact there’s a respectable quantity of tomato and cucumber used to stuff inside.
If you needed to increase the contemporary vegetables, a huge fats juicy Greek Salad would be terrifically on theme! For anything further substantial, highly if you’re making Gyros for a group, attempt this Greek Lemon Orzo Salad as well.
And although not particularly a Greek-style salad, this Cucumber Salad with Garlic & Herb Dressing OR this Creamy Cucumber Salad with Lemon Yogurt Dressing would move down a deal with with this Gyros.
If you’re actually in need of to impress, make Gyros utilizing your very own homemade flatbread wraps. They’re easy and they’re made without yeast!!
