Greek

Gyros (pronounced yee-ros) is the ultimate Greek street food. Chicken is cooked on a vertical rotisserie and served in flatbread. You'll replicate this little technique with a hack that involves rolling the chicken breast into a tight cigar-shape, so you're still left with a juicy and flavourful meat. Served with tzatziki, salad and chips.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast[s]

Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with two thinner pieces of chicken

Lay a sheet of cling film or greaseproof paper over the chicken breast halves and bash the chicken with a rolling pin to an even thickness throughout 

2 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Roll the lemon[s] with your hand on a hard surface (to release more juice!) and cut in half

Combine half of the Greek-style yoghurt (you'll use the rest later!), dried oregano and the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon in a large bowl with a large drizzle of olive oil and a generous pinch of salt and pepper

Add the chicken and give everything a good mix up

3 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Add the chicken to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!) and roll each flattened piece up tightly to form a cigar shape 

Put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min or until the chicken is cooked through - this is your chicken gyros 

4 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Meanwhile, cut the potatoes (skins on) into chips

Add them to a baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil and a generous pinch of salt

Put the baking tray in the oven and cook for 20-25 min or until they're golden and crispy

5 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Meanwhile, cut the cucumber in half, scrape out the inner seeds with a teaspoon and throw the watery seeds away - grate the remaining cucumber

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges

6 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Combine the remaining Greek-style yoghurt with the grated cucumber and chopped garlic (don't like raw garlic? Go easy!) and the juice of 1 [2] lemon wedge[s]

Add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil and season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper - this is your tzatziki 

7 Greek Chicken Gyros, Chips & Salad

Cut 4 [8] thin slices from the beef tomato[es] 

Chop the remaining beef tomato roughly

Separate the outer gem lettuce leaves and chop the inner core roughly

Combine the chopped beef tomato and inner gem lettuce core with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt in a bowl

Pop the wholemeal pittas in the oven for 1-2 min or until they're warmed through

Fill each pitta with some of the tzatziki, gem lettuce leaves, sliced beef tomato and the sliced chicken gyros

Serve with the chips, tomato, lettuce salad and the remaining tzatziki and enjoy!
