Greek Gyro Chicken, Tzatziki Sauce and Flat Bread Recipe

Greek food is a common occurrence in my home.  My dad is half Greek, so we grew up loving Greek food!  My mom has come to be an AMAZING Greek Chef.  This is one of our favorite Greek recipes, and I know you will love it, too.  The Tzatziki Sauce has such a fresh taste and really adds a great kick to the Gyro.  This is how we do it in my home, but it is super flexible. This flat bread recipe is INCREDIBLE!

    I love Greek food. Do you have a Great recipe for greek salad dressing. Ate at a restaurant in Chicago and had a Greek salad, dressing was wonderful. Have tried a couple recipes but they were too bland. Thanks

    I replied earlier but it's gone... maybe because I put a link in it? Anyway, what I said was that I don't know how authentic it is, but my favorite recipe for greek salad dressing can be found on the allrecipes website. Go to the website and search for "absolutely fabulous greek dressing" and it should be the first result listed. It was posted by someone who works in a restaurant so it is a huge recipe, but if you change the number of servings to 10 or 15, it will scale the ingredients to make a standard amount.

    I love Greek food but I've been intimidated to make it. That sauce sounds yummy and looks easy to make. Will have to give this a whirl soon!

    I made this and the chicken and cucumber sauce were delicious. I didn't care for the Naan. I found a different recipe that called for an egg which was delicious.

    Omagoodness the sauce by itself is amazing! I just whipped it up right now in threw it in a pita with some turkey. Made it a million times better. Am looking forward to making it with the chicken. Do you happen to have the nutrition facts or weight watchers points?

    I made this last night -minus making the bread part-- they were fabulous!

    Very good naan! I ate mine with avocado feta cheese and olive oil with garlic and herbs. So good!

    For a long time I've been searching for a bread that was flexible so you can easily put together and easily eat a gyro. Well I finally found a perfect recipe right here. This bread not only folds easily but is delicious. It freezes well and all you need to do is reheat it in the toaster oven. At the end of baking I painted each bread with melted butter and continued baking for 1 minute. I plan on baking a batch of bread and freezing it for future use. Thanks for a great recipe. The milk made the difference!

    Just made this tonight (cheated & bought flat bread)- it was so good! The chicken flavor is great with the tzatziki, red onion & tomatoes. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for this recipe! The naan ended up being less pliable, or soft, than I wanted...but I've never made naan before so I'm sure it was user error. This was really excellent, the chicken marinade was amazing!

  16. Courtney

    This chicken marinade was AMAZING!!!! However, the sauce was kind of blahhhhh. I added lemon juice, dill and some sour cream to liven it up!

    I can honestly say I am very excited to try this. I was just doing some Pinterest browsing, and came across this pin, with what is now an idea for tonight's dinner! Thanks!

    Hi! My family LOVES this recipe, but your link is broken. :( Unfortunately I have a terrible memory, so I can't remember all the ingredients for the chicken. Could your repost, please, please, please?! :)
