I loved Greece - the weather, the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and the food, specifically the gyros. I created this recipe relying on my flavor memories. Grilled herb infused chicken, tender naan, and tzatziki. These gyros are irresistible.
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 8 slices 1/4 inch thick
1 hour, 20 minutes
1. In a plastic bag or glass baking dish add the chicken, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and Mediterranean. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
3. Heat an oven safe grill pan to medium high. Add the chicken skin side down and cook without moving for 3-4 minutes or until brown and crispy. Flip the chicken and place in the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes or unitl internal temperature reaches 160ºF. Let rest for 10 minutes.
4. Meanwhile warm your nann or pita by placing it direcly on the oven rack for 3-4 minutes.
5. When cool enough to handle, remove the bone from the chicken and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Lay warm naan on a plate and smear with tzatziki, then layer lettuce., tomatoes and chicken.
My homemade naan recipe is perfect for these gyros. Roll the dough extra thin so you make a gyro wrap.
