Greek Gyros

Two Greek gyros, filled with tomato, onion, green bell peppers, olives, and homemade tzatziki sauce.
The Mediterranean Dish

Gyros are an absolute Mediterranean staple, and you can make them right at home for an extra-healthy supper. You start by marinating chicken tenders in earthy herbs and spices, lemon juice, and Greek yogurt.

After their soaking session, you char those babies up. Then, envelope the chicken, sliced tomato, onion, and peppers before drizzling the whole thing with a tangy tzatziki sauce.

If you’re not that concerned about the “healthy” part, add a few seasoned french fries to your gyros for some extra flavor, just like they do in Greece.
