From Quarantine Kitchen: I want to take you to the Greek beach with this video for Chicken Gyro on Pita, the ultimate street food experience, without leaving your quarantined kitchen. Complete with the soft Greek pita – flatbread – I’ll show you how to make flavourful chicken gyro, without a spit, simply in your oven. I have a few tricks, including caramelized onions and oven roasted fries that I love adding to this mouthwatering sandwich. One bite and it will instantly put a smile on your face. FULL RECIPE BELOW.

3 Tbsp. olive oil (45 ml)
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs ( about 5 oz. each )150 gm
1/4 tsp. toasted ground cumin seeds (2 ml)
3/4 tsp. coriander seeds, toasted , ground (4 ml)
1/2 tsp. ground allspice (2.5 ml)
1 tsp. smoked paprika mild or hot (5 ml) – divided
salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
grated zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. Greek dried oregano (5 ml)
1 large onion or red onion, sliced
3 medium yukon gold potatoes, cut into wedges
4 – 6 soft Greek pitas – see video here: https://youtu.be/O2UjZaFsjIc
diced tomatoes, garnish optional
tzatziki – See video here: https://youtu.be/czbLfy6LIVI
lettuce, optional

Preheat oven to 375 D
Combine the 2 Tbsp. olive oil with spices and half the paprika, lemon zest and juice. Toss well and let marinate until oven heats or upto 3 hours. Season with salt and pepper.

On a large baking sheet arrange the marinated chicken. Add the sliced onions and toss to cover with spices and oil. Arrange on one side of the baking sheet. Arrange the potato wedges on other side of pan, as per video and season with salt and pepper and reserved paprika and more oregano , if desired. Bake at 375 D 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Use a spatula to move onions and potatoes around, half way through, for even browning. Remove from oven.

Heat Greek pita and slice the baked chicken, with electric or regular knife. Spoon a little tzatziki on bottom of warm pita, top with sliced chicken and onions. Top with lettuce, tomatoes and finally baked potato wedges. Wrap pita and enjoy!
