Chicken gyro


1 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons plus 1 t fresh dill, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon plus 1 T fresh lemon juice
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch wide, 2-inch-long strips
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 white onion, very thinly sliced
6 leaves romaine lettuce
30 grape tomatoes, halved
Salt and pepper to taste
6 thick, fresh pita rounds, heated
Parchment paper, optional


  1. Stir together the yogurt, 2 tablespoons dill, garlic and 1 teaspoon lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Mix chicken together with oregano, 1 teaspoon dill, salt and pepper in a medium  bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet and cook chicken over medium heat until lightly brown and cooked through. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
  4. To assemble pitas, arrange one pita per plate. Lay down a lettuce leaf and top with 1/6th of the chicken. Divide tomatoes and onions amongst servings and top with dollops of the yogurt dill sauce. Fold pita over. You may wrap them individually with parchment paper so the toppings don’t escape.
