Our family loves Chicken Gyros. Lately, I’ve been making easy on-the-go recipes with a variety of Sara Lee® Premium Meats. I’ve been using this Chicken Gyro recipe for the past couple years and it’s my go-to recipe that never fails. It features an easy tzatziki sauce that’s paired with cherry jam. The combination is one for the books!
What I love about this gyro recipe is that it only takes 10 minutes to make. I need quick and easy recipes, especially when I need to eat on the go. I always use fresh ingredients like red onions, cucumbers, mixed greens, bell peppers, feta cheese, and Sara Lee® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast in this pita wrap for the best flavor.
A delicious and easy way to jazz up a sandwich is to add flavor. I start by using the most flavorful deli meat. Then, I pair it with a fresh array of vegetables and sauces. I love the flavor combination of Sara Lee® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast with a tangy four ingredient homemade Greek tzatziki sauce. A simple glaze of cherry preserves adds a rich flavor to the pita wrap that will transform your taste buds.
