Make the Tzatziki SauceMake this Authentic Greek Tzatziki Sauce a few hours in advance or overnight.
Marinate the Chicken
Measure the marinade ingredients and put them into a 1 gallon zip top bag, close the bag and then massage the bag to mix well.
Add the chicken tenders to the zip top bag, close the bag and then massage the bag so that each chicken tender is well covered by the marinade.
Place the bag in the refrigerator and let it marinate for at least 3 hours. 12 hours works the best, but don’t marinate it longer than 24 hours or your chicken will be too mushy.
Warm the Pita Bread
Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
Just before you cook the chicken, place the pita breads on a baking sheet and place them in the oven to be warmed.
Cook the Chicken
You can cook the chicken on an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan. Brush the grill / grill pan with olive oil, then preheat using medium high heat.
After the grill / grill pan is hot, remove the chicken from the marinade bag and place on the grill / grill pan.
Cook the chicken for 3 to 5 minutes on each side (cooking time depends on the size of chicken tenders), until they are golden brown and thoroughly cooked with an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the chicken from the grill / grill pan and place onto a cutting board. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Slice the chicken tenders and put on a serving plate.
Assemble the Gyros
Lay out a warmed pita bread.
Place sliced chicken down the middle of the pita bread.
Top the chicken with an ample amount of tzatziki sauce.
Garnish the top of the tzatziki sauce with cucumber, tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese and optionally parsley.
Fold up the pita bread and enjoy!
