Chicken Gyros

posted in: Recipes 0

Homemade chicken gyros are an amazing dish for everyone in the family. Instead of using the normal lamb, I go with grilled chicken seasoned with coriander and cumin which gives it a really nice flavor. Marinate the chicken in the spice mixture for 30 minutes, throw it on the grill and enjoy tender juicy chicken with loads of flavor. I hope you enjoy!
