Gyro Platter

Everyone loves “Taco Tuesday” right? Of course, because...tacos...and EASY! This gyro platter is just as easy to put together as tacos, and is a great way to add a little flavor variety to your weekly meals without complicating things!

Here are my add-ins: cucumber, tomatoes, feta chunks, green onions, mini bell peppers, radishes, chopped iceberg lettuce, black olives, store-bought tzatziki, spiced chicken strips and pita bread to stuff it all in.

I searched for a gyro seasoning blend for my chicken because I prefer to make my own than buy the stuff that is full of junk. This blend was great with this chicken and mix of ingredients, but it didn't taste at all like a gyro! My gyro seasoning blend search continues (or I’ll cave and buy the Super Gyro from @primalpalate )! Has anyone tried that one before?

This chicken was simple to make: I sliced chicken tenders into thin strips, seasoned with spices (keep it simple with s&p or do a quick search for a Greek seasoning recipe), tossed with oil and let it sit while I prepped all of my other ingredients. Then, I threw the chicken (w/the oil) in a hot cast iron pan, let it brown on one side, flipped the pieces and finished them off (5-6 minutes total). Super simple, can be tweaked to accommodate whole30/paleo/vegetarian etc, and always a crowd pleaser!
