Chicken Gyro's.

Here's a spin off of some chicken gyro's. 

I threw together (with the help of Damian and Caitlin) this recipe one day because we were feeling like using the grill but wanted something simple and quick to make. Remember my Greek cucumber sauce? Well, I currently have mass amounts of Greek yogurt so I whipped some up quick, and a few other things to go along with it...

If you couldn't tell by now, I LOVE cooked peppers and onions so any excuse I get to add them to a dish I will. This meal is easy peezy!

Chicken Gyros

What you need:
- 1 1/2 Lb chicken, cubed
- 2 Tbs olive oil, separated
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tsp Oregano, and Dill
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1 sweet onion, sliced
- lettuce (to top gyro)
- tomatoes (to top gyro)
- 4 Pitas
- All the yummy stuff for the sauce; see recipe HERE

Marinate cubed chicken in one Tbs olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano for a few minutes. Place chicken on skewers and grill at 450 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally. Place sliced peppers and onions into skillet with olive oil, top with salt and pepper and saute for about 15-20 minutes or until soft and browning. 

Top pitas with all your favorite choices and enjoy!

The cutting board is in the shape of a pig, isn't that adorable?

We charred them a little but they were still delicious! 

Were almost to hump day!
