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!

Feta Tzatziki


  • 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).


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

    I thought about making this, but seeing the calorie count quickly changed my mind. Please tell me this is a mistake, and the calorie count is for all 3 servings.

    1. Hi Carmela,
      I always recommend that if the nutritional information is important to you, you use your own personal calculator. Ours is automatic and controlled by google. It’s not something we’d prefer to be using. We are required to. I’m sorry for the trouble, we do our best! Hope you enjoy the recipe! xT

  2. My husband and I are OBSESSEDA EITH THIS RECIPE! It’s perfect! We don’t have a blender so we use a hand chipper to get the feta whipped as best as we can and love it! We also do not have a shredder so we just quarter the cucumber and try to slice thin, actually love it because it’s a nice crunch! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hey Heather,
      So glad to hear this recipe turned out nicely for you, thanks for making it and your comment:)

    I tried this last night for dinner and have 2 comments: 1.the shredded cucumbers should have all moisture drained before adding them to the tzatziki sauce. 2. 25 minutes is not long enough to marinate the chicken for the flavor to permeate the meat. Also, the chicken pieces should be patted dry leaving no marinade on them before cooking. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Hi Kathy,

    We absolutely loved it Tieghan. Thank you so much. Great flavor. Great in the pita or over rice or rice cauliflower. Yummy!!!

    1. Hi Shari,
      Thanks so much for trying this dish and your feedback, so glad to hear that it turned out well for you! Xx

  5. Question – I live on a boat for 3 months- can I cook then freeze the chicken? How long an tzatziki stay in refrigerator. Thank you –

    1. Hi Hope,
      How fun! Sure, you can definitely freeze the chicken. The tzatziki is good for up to 1 week in the fridge. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

    I have made a lot of your recipes, mostly love. I think my family doesn’t love smoked paprika – so I will switch to sweet. Also, any suggestions on what to do with the huge amount of left over feta tzatziki – would love a suggestion. Didn’t have any trouble with liquid on the sheet pan after baking – setting oven to broil worked perfectly.

    1. Hi Jeanne,
      Thanks so much for trying this recipe and your feedback!! The feta tzatziki is great over a salad or to dip veggies in:) I hope this helps! xT
