Greek Chicken Gyro

Greek chicken gyro is on the menu in Book recipe, and we are going to teach you how to make this delicious recipe from scratch!

It pretty cold outside, it’s still winter here. I miss the summer vibe, I miss my trip to Greece so I think this recipe will take me to the sunny beach of Zakinthos island.

This recipe has so much variety. You can mix in so many veggies, depends on your taste.

  5. Now let's cook the chicken. On a frying pan on medium-high heat add the chicken thigh with the skin down and cook it.
  6. After chicken is done, let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting it into big chunks
  7. Cut the veggies now. Onions Julien, cherry tomatoes in half, and remove the big stem from baby spinach
  8. Now combine everything into a loaf of fresh greek pita bread and enjoy it.
