ISO: Chicken Gyros (TNT prefered)

gotta craving for em. i have always had them store bought, but never made myself.

I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.

Yes I have tried it... with pork and chicken, both came out well!


Serve this with Tzatziki...
  • 400-500ml / about 1lb Greek style yogurt (which is richer than regular full milk yogurt, if you can't find it you can also use a regular yogurt and blend in a bit of sour cream...)
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgine olive oil
  • 1tsp dill
  • 1/2 tsp mint
  • (optional) salt

Wash, peel and grate (or finely chop) the cucumber. Now you must drain the liquid from the cucumber. Place it in a sieve, then a plate or bowl over it(as a weight), leave it over the sink for at least half an hour. The "express" method--- place it in a paper towel and squeeze it hard. In a bowl you blend the drained cucumber with the chopped garlic, the yogurt, oil, herbs and (if preferred) a little salt, and you stir until it attains a creamy smooth texture.

Buon Appetito!!

That's a really nice tzatziki recipe urmaniac13!! I'm totally for the idea of adding a little dill - gives it sort of a Eastern European feeling Thanks for posting your recipe!

We always add dill and a little lemon juice too.

Oh and our gyros.. they are ALWAYS made out of lamb!!! They are the best!!!!
