Chicken Gyros & Tzatziki Sauce

Chicken gyros you can whip up on busy nights

Serves: 4

4 chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
1 tablespoon Mediterranean seasoning (you can substitute Italian seasoning in a pinch)
1 red pepper, thinly sliced
½ red onion, thinly sliced
4 pitas (this is a Greek style flatbread you can find at almost any grocery store near the bread and tortillas or in the bakery)
optional: lettuce, feta cheese crumbles

Tzatziki Sauce:
½ English cucumber, peeled and diced
2 cups cold plain Greek yogurt
4 teaspoons minced garlic
⅓ cup chopped dill, fresh or frozen (may sub 2 tablespoons dried dill)
1½ Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice of ½ medium lemon)
Salt & Black Pepper to taste

1. Puree all sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor (see note below recipe first!). Cover and chill until ready to serve. (If you have time, make this a few hours in advance or the night before so that the flavors can marinate)
2. Season chicken breasts with Mediterranean seasoning. Cook in a large skillet or pan over medium heat 5 - 6 minutes on each side until cooked through. Cut into strips.
3. Lay pitas on a clean surface. Add lettuce (if desired, chicken, red pepper strips, and onions. Top with tzatziki sauce and feta (if desired). Fold pita over like a sandwich, or roll it into a "tunnel shape".
