Before you start making these delectable gyro recipes, let’s get one thing straight: the pronunciation of “gyro”. For all the philistines out there, “gyro” isn’t pronounced JAI-ro, like in the word “gyroscope”. Those in the know, with some real Greek class, pronounce the word YEE-ro, with a soft “g”. Phew—now that that’s out of the way, here are some great gyro recipes!
- ½ cup lemon juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- ¾ tsp garlic, minced
- ½ tsp ground mustard
- ½ tsp ground oregano
- ½ pound boneless D&D Poultry chicken breast
- ½ small red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 pitas
Combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, mustard, and oregano in a Ziploc bag. Add chicken and seal bag. Turn chicken in bag to distribute marinade evenly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Drain chicken and discard marinade. Sauté chicken for 7 to 8 minutes or until juices run clear. Spoon half the chicken on each pita, cover with D&D Poultry’s signature Tarator sauce (see below) and onions, and serve immediately.
