Portly Cooks | Gyros


I first actually tried Gyros standing, well swaying slightly in front of a street food truck, at some small hour of the morning in Portland, Oregon. It was absolutely delicious and I have finally got round to making my own!

  • 2 Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 200ml Greek Yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp of the following
    • Paprika
    • Cumin
    • Cayenne Pepper
    • Zaatar
    • Cinnamon
    • Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Flat Breads

Put the yoghurt in a bowl and add the oil and spices. Mix it together and then chuck it in a freezer bag, followed by the chicken. Marinade the chicken in the yoghurt for a least an hour or overnight if you have time.

Once the chicken has marinaded put it on a grill pan and cook in the oven until crispy and cooked through.  Once it’s done, chop it up, warm the flat breads in the microwave and drizzle with some mayo. Enjoy!
