Why This one

a few words from me

The Chicken Gyros dish is an absolute delight when paired with crunchy vegetables and crispy baked tortillas. The juicy and tender chicken legs, baked to perfection, provide an explosion of flavours in every bite. This dish is perfect for any occasion, be it a family dinner or a party. It is sure to impress your guests with its exquisite taste and aroma.



6 chicken thighs skinless

6 gluten-free tortillas

1 cucumber

1 lettuce

1 tin sweetcorn

1 bunch rocket (rucola)

2 packets Greek Gyros seasoning (30 grams)

200 ml Greek Yoghurt

1 bunch fresh dill

50 ml olive oil

salt, pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, 1 clove fresh garlic

THE how to make


1. Cut the chicken thighs into thin strips.

2. Mix the chicken strips with some olive oil and gyro seasoning in a bowl.

3. Preheat your oven and place the seasoned chicken strips in a baking tray.

4. Bake the chicken in the oven for 10 minutes at a temperature of 200°C.

5. Open the sweetcorn can and drain the water.

6. Preheat some olive oil in a frying pan and add the sweetcorn, a pinch of salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Stir everything together and fry for 1-2 minutes while continuously stirring.

7. You can either bake tortilla baskets in the oven while baking the chicken, or you can prepare them earlier. (You need a specific form to bake baskets in the oven. Please follow the link below for more information) 1648257738&sprefix=tortilla+ basket+%2Caps%2C286&sr=8-

8. Slice the other half of the cucumber, shred the lettuce, wash rocket (rucola) and dill.

9. Layer the meat, vegetables, and sauce in the tortilla baskets in the following order: lettuce, sweetcorn, meat, sauce, thinly sliced cucumber, rocket (rucola), meat, and sauce again.

Now, let's move on to the delicious tzatziki sauce:

1. Use a grater to grate half of the cucumber into a small bowl and add a pinch of salt. Mix it well and let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes. This will help draw out the water from the cucumber, so we don’t have a watery tzatziki sauce. Pour out the water from the cucumber.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the yogurt with a pinch of cayenne pepper, one clove of minced garlic, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, dill, a pinch of salt, and the grated cucumber. Stir everything well and adjust with salt and pepper as necessary.

3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving. Enjoy your delicious chicken tortilla baskets with tzatziki sauce!
