Chicken Gyros | Recipe

Chicken Gyros is one of my go to street food dishes when we're at a festival or fair and with my baking hat on I've been trying different bread recipes so decided to give Greek flatbreads a go. I marinated some chicken to make our own Chicken Gyros. This recipe will make enough for 2 Gyros each for four people. 


For the Flatbreads:

300g Bread Flour
7g Instant Yeast
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Olive Oil
150ml Milk
100ml Water (lukewarm)

For the Chicken:

500g chicken (diced)
250ml Greek Yoghurt
The juice of one lemon
1 tbsp Oregano
1 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
2 Garlic cloves (crushed)

Start with the chicken as this can marinating while you make the bread. Combine all of the marinade ingredients and along with chicken put in a sealable plastic bag (or bowl) and leave in the fridge for at least an hour (but for as long as possible).

While the chicken is marinating add the flour to a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast to one side of the bowl and the sugar and salt to the other side. Add the olive oil and gradually add the water and milk (you might not need all of it, or you might need a little more).

Mix with your hands until it all comes together and forms a supple dough. The dough should be moist but not wet. Leave it to rise in an oiled bowl until it's doubled in size. Once risen divide into 8 pieces and form them into small balls, dust with flour and leave them covered with a clean tea towel until you're ready to start cooking them.

Take the chicken out of the fridge and put the pieces on skewers and cook under a grill on a high heat for around 15mins (TIP: to stop wooden skewers burning, soak them in water for a few hours before cooking). Turn the chicken regularly until it is cooked through and starting to char. 

Flatten each dough ball and roll out to around 5mm thick with a rolling pin. In a hot frying pan or skillet cook on each side for 2-3 minutes until they start to go golden.

Serve with green salad leaves, roasted peppers, feta cheese and Tzatziki. We served ours like a buffet on our coffee table and everyone helped themselves and assembled their own Gyros. 


Well, That's all for now.


Pin me for later
