Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzaziki

Greek Chicken Gyros with Tzaziki

The marinade for the chicken is so sensational that I use it even when I'm not making Gyros! This is fantastic for entertaining because you can just lay it all out for guests to help themselves. The smell when the chicken is cooking is incredible - you can really smell the oregano. MARINADE TIME: Minimum 3 hours
