BGE Leftovers: Chicken Gyro

After our Amurica celebration and the mass amounts of food I cooked, I was left with plenty of leftovers.  One of the most anticipated leftovers for me was some of the Italian chicken breasts.  Some of the other items were less American.  Upon inventorying the ruins of the party I also found some pitas and feta cheese (no clue what these were used for).  It must be known that I have been on a gyro kick ever since I had one in NYC. This could only mean one thing, time to take a crack at making my own gyro (of course using the chicken instead of gyro meat).

I made some homemade tatziki sauce using Greek yogurt, dill, salt, pepper, and red onions adding each to taste.  I nuked the chicken to warm it up.  I added tatziki sauce, lettuce, hot sauce, red onions, feta, and the chicken to a pita.

This was very tasty and definitely curbed my gyro craving for a couple days.  The tatziki sauce was later used as a veggie dip and was a big hit.  I am definitely going to make these again at some point. Might have to take a shot at lamb at some point.
