Chicken Gyros

Submitted by: LOLO8301

Introduction

This is so easy and so YUMMY! You get a whole pita (2 halves), so it is really filling too! This is so easy and so YUMMY! You get a whole pita (2 halves), so it is really filling too!
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 medium cucumbers, chopped, seeded, peeled
    1/2 cup fat free or reduced fat sour cream
    1 tbsp chopped fresh dill (about 5 sprigs?)
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size cubes
    1/4 cup oil and vinegar dressing (I like to use greek vinaigrette, but you can use any vinaigrette and add some greek seasoning)
    1 medium red onion, chopped
    4 whole-wheat pita breads, cut in half

Directions

Combine cucumbers, sour cream, dill, lemon juice and garlic. Stir and cover; leave in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Cut chicken into bite-size cubes and cook in about half of the dressing. This should be on medium heat probably only for 10 minutes or less. The chicken should be lighlty browned but cooked through. Add onions and remaining dressing.


Cut pita bread in half (be careful to cut in the right direction or you won't get a nice pocket to stuff). I think I accidentally did that the first time and had to try to make my own. If you cut it the right way, the pocket should just pop open. You can buy the pitas already cut to avoid that. Spoon in chicken and top with some of the cucumber mix. I like to do two layers of each to get everything kind of mixed together.


This recipe makes 4 servings (2 pita halves is 1 serving). I find that half of one serving fills me up just fine.

  • These were just ok. Not as good as I had hoped but probably a lot healthier than the ones I'm use to :) - 8/23/09

  • It was pretty good. I ended up using a full cup of sour cream cause the cucumbers were larger than medium. And i let the chicken, onion, and dressing sit for another 30 min over warm heat to soften the onions up some before serving. All in all i'd make this again :) - 2/5/08

  • Very yummy and easy to make. We added an ounce of feta cheese to each as well. Even my kids (4 and 7) liked it. Can't wait to have it for lunch tomorrow, I bet it will be good cold. Thanks!! - 6/3/07
