Vegetarian Chicken Gyro with Tzatziki Sauce

Adapted from a recipe by Mindy Johnson of

When was the last time you had a Gyro? How 'bout tonight? All that lovely, creamy Tzatziki sauce..... mmmmmm.......


Veggie Chicken Cutlets- 2 packages/4 cutlets *
Whole Grain Flatbread or Pita
Greek Yogurt- 1 container
Cucumber- 1 small to medium
Mint- fresh, if possible, chopped
Tomato- sliced
(Onion- if you like it)
Garlic Powder, Cumin, Oregano, Salt


Saute chicken in a little oil and while browning, prepare Tzatziki (Make in advance, if possible, so flavors can meld.)

Peel cucumber and cut in half the long way, then in half the short way. Scoop out seeds. Chop. Mix into yogurt. Add chopped mint, some garlic powder, and salt. Mix thoroughly and taste. The flavors will become stronger as they develop, so don't add too much- too early. Add more seasoning if you really think it needs it, but it's better to add later on. Put in fridge.

As chicken browns, add cumin, oregano, and salt. (Check package to see if chicken has already been seasoned.) Taste as you go, and add seasonings according to your taste.

Warm bread, either over stove or in microwave and place on plate. Slice chicken in strips and add chicken, sliced tomato, onion, and top with Tzatziki sauce.

Fold, and enjoy. Have lots of napkins on hand!
