Sheet Pan Chicken Gyros with Feta Tzatziki. Street food inspired, oven roasted chicken stuffed inside fresh pitas with all the “extras”. Add delicious creamy feta tzatziki sauce, spicy harissa, and all of the desired toppings you love. This Greek-inspired loaded chicken gyro is SO GOOD. It makes for a quick, fun, delicious, and different weeknight dinner. Serve each gyro with homemade fries for a meal that everyone will truly love.

I’m starting to feel like every recipe these days starts out similar…Creighton inspired this one. Having him home in Colorado means the dinner requests come in regularly every morning. He loves to try new things, and ethnic foods are his favorite. His favorite cuisine is probably a toss-up between Greek and Indian dishes. He loves all the flavors, spices, and sauces that are traditionally used.
And I can’t blame him, Greek especially, is one of my favorites too. I love the freshness, bright herbs, garlic, and lemon that’s widely used. And of course, we all know I love feta cheese.
Every time Creigh is in town, without a doubt he requests a gyro. He loves any kind of loaded “street food” style wrap/sandwich/bowl. Of course, he’d love a lamb gyro, which I’m sure is delicious, but chicken is what I had on hand!

The idea with these gyros is that they’re simple. Nothing too fancy, but they use such delicious flavors. I wanted to roast up the chicken on a sheet pan to keep things really quick and easy.
And then incorporate a super special element that’s a little different from your average gyro, and that’s the feta tzatziki.

Here are the details

The yogurt, lemon, olive oil, and seasonings are key to good flavoring of the gyro meat. Also, lots of smoked paprika and oregano with garlic. I love to add shallots to the mix too. This mix is tossed with cubed chicken and a splash of lemon juice. Then let the chicken sit for a bit to really soak up the wonderful spices.

While the chicken is resting, I usually make up a batch of fries to serve alongside.

Traditionally most gyro meat is roasted vertically like you would a rotisserie chicken. But since my variation is being made at home, I roasted mine in the oven until it got a slight char. ‘Tis delicious, but again, this is not traditional, just a little bit easier.

The Tzatziki

This sauce is probably my favorite element of these gyros. It’s your classic tzatziki sauce, but with the addition of salty, whipped feta cheese.
To be honest, this sauce is really why I made these gyros. Once I had the idea to incorporate whipped feta into tzatziki I was sold.
Everything is blended until creamy, then at the end stir in the cucumbers and a pinch of chili flakes. So simple, but it works so wonderfully with these flavors and really steps up the tzatziki sauce!

Finish These Up!

As with any gyro, you can pick and choose your toppings/sauces. I used a bit of spicy harissa on top. And the feta tzatziki sauce on the bottom of my warmed pitas. Then just stuff the chicken inside and add whatever extra toppings you enjoy. SO DELICIOUS!
So full of flavor, and layered with texture. Not to mention, they’re just a fun way to switch up your average weeknight dinner!

Ingredients

Feta Tzatziki

Instructions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, olive oil, cubed chicken, lemon juice, garlic, shallots, paprika, oregano, chili flakes, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Let marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
    2. Preheat the oven to 425° F. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes, toss and bake another 5-10 minutes, or until cooked through. Switch the oven to broil. Broil 1-2 minutes, until the chicken chars on the edges (watch carefully)
    3. Meanwhile, make the Tzatziki. Combine the feta, 1/4 cup yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until creamy. Stir in 1/3 cup more yogurt, the cucumbers, and a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes.
    4. To assemble, stuff/spread each pita with tzatziki, then lettuce, and chicken. Add red onions and herbs. Drizzle over more tzatziki and if desired, harissa (recipe in notes).

Notes

Spiced Harissa Sauce: combine 1/3 cup harissa, 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric, and a pinch of salt

    This meal was a huge hit! We had four people at dinner, and no leftovers. We served it with a side of crispy sweet potato fries. The tzatziki is great for topping the Gyros and for dipping the fries. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you Tieghan 🙂

    Alright – I am beyond obsessed with this recipe… It is so good and SO easy! I find myself wanting to include it in every single week’s meal schedule when I sit down to meal plan. The chicken has tons of flavor and is so easy to throw together. I usually add some fresh dill to the homemade tzatziki, although it’s delicious as written above as well. Love to serve this with a fresh cucumber tomato salad.

    We really enjoyed these on the homemade naan bread. I don’t like feta so I left it on the side which worked well. I used chicken breasts and had no problems with the chicken being dry, but I also left it in the marinade and cooked it on parchment. I think the cooking time can vary depending on the size of your chicken chunks as well. This is definitely one that we will repeat.

    1. Hey Pam,
      Awesome!! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed. Have a great weekend:) xTieghan
