Roll the wrap, enclosing it in baking paper. Twist the end using the surplus baking paper to fasten it.
Avoid marinating the chicken for more than 24 hours, as it could result in the meat becoming tough and chewy.
You can freeze your cooked Greek chicken for convenient meal preparation or individual servings.
The tzatziki reaches its best flavour after being refrigerated for at least an hour, allowing the flavours to blend. Prepare your tzatziki immediately after marinating the chicken.

Personalise your chicken gyro ingredients by adding or substituting elements like bell peppers, olives, artichoke hearts, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, and more.
Before assembly, gently warm your pitas. Warmed pitas are softer and are less likely to tear when rolled.
What to serve with gyros
Gyros are full meals in themselves, packed with protein and vegetables. Still, they are wonderfully paired with a pasta salad, a simple green salad or a Greek quinoa salad with black olives and feta cheese, roasted potatoes, roasted asparagus, roasted broccoli or fried cauliflower, and roasted Brussels sprouts.
