Best Chicken Gyros

Submitted by: PORTSMOM

Introduction

This works well with frozen chicken breasts. Just place them in a freezer bag with the marinade and let them thaw in your fridge. They marinade and thaw at the same time.
The marinade is poured off the chicken making the cals on this even lower.
