Chicken Gyro

Submitted by: JBWCUB8


Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    * 1/4 cup lemon juice
    * 2 tablespoons olive oil
    * 3/4 teaspoon garlic, minced- divided use
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    * 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch strips
    * 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
    * 1/3 cup nonfat yogurt, plain or low-fat yogurt
    * 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
    * 2 gyro bread or pita bread
    * 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

Directions

# Combine lemon juice, oil, 1/2 t of the garlic, mustard and oregano in a gallon zip top plastic bag.
#
2
Add chicken and seal bag.
#
3
Turn bag and gently move chicken around to distribute marinade evenly.
#
4
Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
#
5
In a small bowl combine cucumber, yogurt, dill and remaining garlic. Cover and refrigerate until serving. (NOTE: Cucumbers have a lot of moisture in them so if you want your sauce to be less runny really drain them well and squeeze the water out if you want.).
#
6
Drain chicken, discarding marinade.
#
7
In a large nonstick skillet saute the chicken for 7-8 minutes or until juices run clear.
#
8
Spoon half the chicken on each pita and top with cucumber mixture and sliced onion.
#
9
Lettuce and tomato may be added if you like.
#
10
Fold in half and enjoy.

  • Sounds delicious! I'll make it tonight. :)
    FYI-- You should check your calorie count on the chix. Individual serving should be based on 4oz of chix (half of the 1/2 lb). It drops the cal count by about 135.
    444 sounds a lot better than 579. ;) - 4/12/11
