These are the amazing gyros I was talking about! Yes people they are incredible! But what makes them so good is this Wrap Bread so if and when you make these, make the wrap bread too. You won't regret it!

4 cloves garlic, smashed
Juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 heaping tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoon dried oregano
Salt and pepper
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
Mix all of the above ingredients in a bowl and mix, add the raw cubed chicken and let it marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Then when you are ready throw the whole mix into a frying pan and cook until most of the juice is evaporated and the chicken is cooked through.
You can't have gyros without this:
Tzatziki Sauce (If you don't have time to make it you can always buy it at Costco like I do :) It's yummy!!)
3 cups Greek Yogurt
juice of one lemon (about 3 T)
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 medium cucumbers, seeded and diced
1 Tbs kosher salt for salting cucumbers
1 Tbs finely chopped fresh dill
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Peel cucumbers, then cut in half lengthwise and take a small spoon and scrape out seeds. Discard seeds. Slice cucumbers, then put in a colander, sprinkle on 1 T salt, and let stand for 30 minutes to draw out water. Drain well and wipe dry with paper towel.
In food processor add cucumbers, garlic, lemon juice, dill, and a few grinds of black pepper. Process until well blended, then stir this mixture into the yogurt. Taste before adding any extra salt, then salt if needed. Place in refrigerator for at least two hours before serving so flavors can blend. (This resting time is very important.)
This will keep for a few days or more in the refrigerator, but you will need to drain off any water and stir each time you use it.
Serve the chicken on the wrap bread and top with the Tzatziki sauce and sliced red onions and tomatoes.
