1 cup Greek yogurt (you can use reduced fat or fat free Greek yogurt if you like)

1 large lemon, (juiced)

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

3 garlic cloves, (minced)

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

Kosher salt

Black pepper

Extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 pounds chicken tenderloin (sometimes labeled “tenders”)

1 Greek Salad Recipe

Tzatziki Sauce (homemade or quality store bought)

2 Pita Breads (optional, homemade or quality store bought, cut into wedges)


Make the marinade. In a large bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne (if using), and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Add a drizzle of olive oil (about 2 tablespoons) and whisk to combine.

Marinate the chicken. Add the chicken to the marinade and toss to coat very well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Cook the chicken. Heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium-high. Shake excess marinade off the chicken. When the oil is ready and shimmering, arrange the chicken in one single layer in the pan. Cook on one side until browned (about 4 to 5 minutes), then turn over and cook for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked through to 165°F and its juices run clear.

Assemble the gyro bowls. When the chicken is ready, divide the chicken pieces among 4 to 6 bowls. To each bowl, add Greek salad, tzatziki sauce, and a few pita wedges. Serve immediately.
