These also make for a great lunch. Just pack the toppings and flatbread in their own little containers and throw together at lunch time. No need to even heat them! Enjoy!

The ingredients: (makes 4 gyros)
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thirds
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lemon, juiced
2 tsp. red wine vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup tzatziki sauce (click for recipe or buy it premade from the store)
Combine garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper and pour into a large Ziploc baggie.
Put sliced chicken breasts inside the baggie, seal, and place in fridge allowing to marinate for about one hour.
Preheat heavy frying pan to high, generously sprinkle salt and pepper over the chicken, and place chicken in single layer. Cook on high for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned on the one side. Flip and repeat on the other side.
When both sides are browned (don't cook it all the way through yet), turn the heat down to LOW and cook for about 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and cooked through. Remove from pan and allow to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing into smaller pieces.
Heat the flatbread for about 30 seconds in the microwave or until soft and pliable. Layer tzatziki sauce, chicken , tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and lettuce. Roll and enjoy! To get them to stay wrapped, use a toothpick or wrap it in foil.
