Chicken Gyros Printable recipe
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoon(s) garlic, grated
1-2 tablespoon(s) dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried savory
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 lbs chicken tenders
1/2 cup tahini paste
1/2 cup water
Juice of half a lemon, or more, depending upon your tastes
1 clove garlic, grated
Salt to taste
Lettuce, tomato, onion, if desired
Whisk all marinade ingredients together, add chicken, tossing to coat well. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours.
Prepare tahini sauce by mixing all ingredients until well-blended; set aside.
Remove chicken from refrigerator 30-minutes before you are ready to cook.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Remove chicken from marinade and place on hot grill. Grill for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, but still juicy.
Heat pitas on grill in the last few moments of cooking the chicken.
Wrap chicken in pita bread, add lettuce, tomato, and onion, if desired, and drizzle on tahini sauce.
