Greek Chicken Pita

Submitted by: KKOLLIG

Introduction

I love gyros and most Greek food, but it can be really bad for you, so I made a recipe that has the same flavors without all the fat. I love gyros and most Greek food, but it can be really bad for you, so I made a recipe that has the same flavors without all the fat.
