  • 1/4 cup fresh pársley leáves
  • Sált ánd pepper

TO SERVE

  • 4 to 6 pitá breáds or flát breáds

Instructions

  1. Pláce the Márináde ingredients in á ziplock bág ánd másságe to mix. Ádd the chicken into the ziplock bág ánd másságe to cover áll the chicken in the Márináde. Márináte for át leást 2 hours preferábly 3 hours ideálly 12 hours ánd no longer thán 24 hours.

MÁKE THE TZÁTZIKI

  1. Cut the cucumber in hálf lengthwise. Use á teáspoon to scrápe the wátery seeds out. Coársely gráte the cucumber using á box gráter. Then wráp in páper towels or á teá towel ánd squeeze to remove excess liquid.
  2. Pláce cucumber in á bowl. Ádd remáining ingredients then mix to combine. Set áside for át leást 20 minutes for the flávours to meld.

SÁLÁD

  1. Combine ingredients in á bowl.

COOK CHICKEN

  1. Brush the outdoor grill with oil then preheát on medium high. Or heát 1 tbsp of oil in á fry pán over medium high heát.
  2. Remove chicken from Márináde. Cook the chicken for 2 to 3 minutes on eách side until golden brown ánd cooked through (cooking time depends on size of chicken).
  3. Remove the chicken from the grill / fry pán onto á pláte. Cover loosely with foil ánd állow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

ÁSSEMBLE GYROS

  1. If your chicken thighs áre lárge you máy need to cut them. Mine were smáll.
  2. Get á pitá breád or flátbreád (preferábly wármed) ánd pláce it on á piece of párchment (báking) páper (or you could use foil). Pláce some Sálád down the middle of the breád then top with chicken ánd Tzátziki.
  3. Roll the wráp up enclosing it with the párchment páper. Twist the end with the excess párchment páper to secure it.
  4. I prefer to láy everything out on á táble ánd let everyone help themselves.

Recipe Notes:1. This recipe mákes á generous ámount of Tzátziki. But better to háve too much thán not enough!2. This recipe serves 4 to 6 people. Depending on how robust áppetites áre!3. I don t recommend freezing the chicken in the márináde for this párticulár recipe becáuse the yoghurt sepárátes ánd goes gráiny ánd I don t know whát thát will do to the chicken. While the tenderising / flávour infusion should still work I think it might not look thát nice when cooked.
