Rhodes Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

Need something yummy and different for dinner? Try Rhodes Chicken Gyros tonight!

I'm a big fan of Greek food and I've been seeing Gyros floating all over Pinterest. I've had the idea to make pitas with Rhodes rolls for some time now. So finally buckled down and made them. I was so excited when I peeked in the oven and they actually looked like pitas! I'm not sure what I was expecting them to look like.. but you know what I mean right? I love when things turn out how you want them to! Although there are many steps involved with this recipe, I definitely think these are on the "must make" list for sure. I know my husband and I really loved them and I hope you will to!

 

 

Rhodes Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

For the seasoned chicken you will need: chicken breasts (cut in to strips), olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, dried oregano, cumin, onion powder & salt.

Once removed from the oven you will want to immediately remove from the stone and place in a plastic baggie to keep soft. Keep baggie open as to not let the pita "sweat". If you skip this important step, your pitas will continue cooking on the hot stone and become crispy. These store for up to two days well wrapped or frozen for three weeks.
