Yep! Greek Chicken Gyros
Wow! These Yep! Greek Chicken Gyros from Elizabeth with Jam Jar Kitchen are jam packed with fresh flavors. A refreshingly light take on gyros that are perfect for summer!

Serves: 4-6


For the chicken

  • 1 ½ to 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4th cup olive oil
  • 1/4th cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Yep! Shake Greek seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon

To assemble the gyros


 - Place chicken thighs in a large ziploc bag. Set aside.

 - In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, Greek yogurt, Yep! Shake Greek Seasoning, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar, and the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Whisk until well combined.

 - Pour the marinade over the chicken thighs and seal the freezer bag. Allow chicken to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

 - Take your marinated chicken thighs out of the fridge and allow them to sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes.

 - Preheat your grill on medium high heat until very hot (5-10 minutes).

 - Place chicken thighs on the grill and cook over medium high heat with the lid closed for 5-6 minutes. Flip chicken to the other side and continue to grill over medium high heat for an additional 5-6 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

 - Remove chicken from the grill and place in a foil lined pan. Loosely cover with foil and allow chicken to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.

 - While the chicken is resting, toast your gyro bread (optional, but delicious!). Heat a pan on the stove over medium high heat until hot. Rub a little olive oil on both sides of the gyro (or naan) bread and cook in the pan for about 1-2 minutes per side until soft and pliable. Wrap in foil to keep warm until you assemble your gyros.

 - Assemble the chicken gyros.

 - Slice the grilled chicken thighs. Spread a little tzatziki on the gyro bread and then add chicken thigh slices. Add toppings of your choice and enjoy!
