St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Church’s Chicken Gyros

I found this recipe on the internet once and noted it down, which is good because I couldn’t find it when I went to look for it again.   Also a great summer recipe when cucumbers and tomatoes are in the garden.

1 recipe Tatziki sauce (below)
1/2 lb. chicken meat, cut into thin slices
Greek seasoning mix (available in most grocery stores)
olive oil
pita bread
1/4 onion, sliced very thinly (slivered)
1/2 tomato, sliced very thinly

Sprinkle greek seasoning mix over chicken and saute chicken in a frying pan until cooked through.

Spread some olive oil on the pita bread and warm them in the oven for a couple of minutes. Cut them in half, and stuff with the chicken, onions and tomatoes.

Pour Tatziki sauce over and serve more on the table.

Tatziki sauce:

1 1/4 cup plain yoghurt
2 peeled & diced cucumbers
1 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Mix all and check seasonings. Add salt to taste.
