Quick and Easy Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

One of the many things I miss about NYC is the delicious Lebanese restaurants and the chicken gyros to be exact.. I just love chicken gyros.  Like seriously what’s better than marinated chicken coated with creamy tzatziki Sauce and rolled in a pita!

This dish is light, healthy, and super easy to make. Plus, you can make it with the tzatziki sauce or if your like my husband, have it with ketchup instead.

The chicken can be marinated overnight or instantly. The marinated chicken can stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days and is ready to use when needed! it’s great for a quick and easy lunch or dinner.
