Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

I've been CrAvInG a yummy gyro. I'm totally missing the Grecian Key in Pocatello. So I gave this recipe a try and it turned out pretty good! The softwrap bread was delicious!!!! So soft and perfect. The chicken was really good too. The sauce wasn't what I was hoping- but who can compare to the Grecian Key? It all turned out really good, though. I'm totally adding it to my fave recipes!

Marinade for chicken

4 cloves garlic

Juice of 1 lemon (about 3 Tb)

2 tsp red wine vinegar (I used what I had and it was still great!)

2 TB extra virgin olive oil

2 heaping TB plain yogurt (I used leftover Greek yogurt from the tzatziki sauce)

1 TB dried oregano

salt and pepper

1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubed

Marinade chicken for about an hour in refrigerator

Tzatziki sauce

1 6 oz container Greek yogurt (I used Yoplait)

1/4 shredded cucumber

2 TB red onion, finely chopped

1 tsp dried dill

2 tsp lemon juice

Mix ingredients and let refrigerate for a few hours so the flavors can meld

Soft wrap bread

this is a long recipe so I'll just post the link. Enjoy! http://http//
