Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros

Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros are a delicious and healthy dinner that comes together quickly. Fluffy pita bread, chicken, yogurt sauce, and feta are a match made in heaven.

So, these Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros are most definitely not authentic.

But they are yummy.

And easy.

So, I’ll keep making them until someone in the house tells me not to.

And then still probably after that.

Seasoning the Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros is made easier because I use McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning. The steak seasoning has been a favorite of ours for almost seven years now. My friend Elaina turned me onto it, and I have subsequently hooked my mother-in-law. We use it for meat and grilled veggies. And pretty much everything. It’s so, so good. We buy it at Costco, I’ve seen it at most grocery stores, and as always, Amazon carries it.

While the chicken is absolutely delicious, the toppings and pita bread really shine in these Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros. Crumbly, salty feta, Homemade Hummus, and a flavorful yogurt take these gyros to the next level. I have made homemade pita before but in a pinch, we love the Papa Pita rounds you can find at Costco in the fresh bread aisle.

Homemade Grilled Chicken Gyros are one of my favorite ways to use up leftover grilled chicken. Using previously grilled chicken from another meal means this comes together even more quickly. Want to make it even faster? Use shredded rotisserie chicken. The possibilities are endless!

Ok, not endless, but you have enough to at least count it off on your fingers.

  3. I’m going to make this tonight, and will likely end up just eating the yogurt dip with a spoon. Whatevs.

  4. I love love LOVE Gyros. Going to the county fair or any event similar to that always meant GYROS to eat ! 🙂 I used some kit every once in awhile when my kids were growing up to make them for dinner but it was not the same at all! I’ll have to try this 🙂

  5. I am so very glad I wasn’t drinking anything while sitting in front of my computer monitor and keyboard reading this. The results could have been expensive.

    That looks delish, BTW. It’s going onto my list of 1,000 Things I Must Try At Some Point When I Get The Time.
