Skip the takeout and make these easy, healthy gyros at home. Lean chicken breast is flavored with classic gyro seasonings and tucked into a whole-wheat pita with veggies and a cool tzatziki sauce. Look for tzatziki--Greek cucumber-yogurt sauce--near other prepared refrigerated dips like hummus and salsa. Source:, July 2017

The marinade for the chicken provides so much flavor! I opted to just buy a store brand tzatziki instead of making it. Made a great meal prep entree. Read More
