Greek Chicken Gyros


I really love this recipe because it is so fresh and quick to prepare. The mint gives it such a fresh taste which is great on a warm day. I prefer Gyro but you can use pita pockets, which can be a little temperamental but are a lighter option to gyro wraps. Either way both taste just as delicious. The tzatziki sauce is also optional to buy, I like to make it myself but if you are short on time you can buy this already prepared at most grocery stores. If you love this recipe or have any suggestions, drop a comment below. Enjoy!
