Moroccan-spiced chicken breasts sliced and served gyro style with tons of vegetables and topped off with a zingy tahini sauce.
These gyros are a favorite here at The Stay At Home Chef. This simple meal is full of flavor, but light and healthy and packed full of vegetables. While it has little to nothing to do with a traditional Greek Gyro, this tasty sandwich is inspired by Gyro sandwiches and the flavors of Morocco for a fusion combination that is sure to inspire!
How do you pronounce the word gyro?
You’ve probably heard it has “hee-row” or “jai-row” but the the correct way to say it is yee-row. Gyro = YEE-row.
What is tahini? Where do I find tahini in the grocery store?
Tahini is a ground sesame paste. It is often sold in a tin can and can usually be found near the other ground nut and seed mixtures like peanut butter.
What toppings are good on a gyro?
We recommend serving gyros with shredded purple or green cabbage, sliced bell pepper, sliced cucumber, sliced tomato, thinly sliced red onion, and roughly chopped cilantro.
What kind of bread is that? Where do I buy it?
The bread used for gyros is usually Pita bread. You can make your own pita bread, or it’s also widely available in most grocery stores in the US and Canada. Alternately, you can also look for any Arabic-style flatbread.
