  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of sweet paprika
  • 2 pinches of crushed pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of dry thyme
  • 60 ml of olive oil
  • 600 g of chicken fillet More:
  • tzatziki sauce
  • pie bread
  • chips
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato


  1. Grind coriander seeds, cloves of garlic, grated lemon peel, sweet paprika, crushed pepper and dry thyme in a blender. Mix well, then add olive oil and lemon juice (2-3 tablespoons). Mix the marinade well to combine the ingredients.
  2. Cut the chicken fillet into thin strips and cover them with the marinade. Let the meat rest in the marinade for about 15 minutes, so that the flavors blend nicely.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a pan and fry the marinated chicken until golden brown and fully cooked. During baking, the meat can be stirred from time to time so that it browns evenly.
  4. When the meat is ready, put it in a bowl and pour one spoonful of tzatziki sauce over it. Mix well so that the sauce is evenly distributed over the meat.
  5. Heat the pita bread on the grill or in a pan until it becomes slightly crispy.
  6. Let's prepare side dishes for gyros: sliced onions, tomato slices and chips for extra crunch.
  7. Place the marinated meat with the sauce on the pita bread, add slices of onion, tomato and, if desired, some chips for additional taste and texture. Wrap it up and enjoy the taste of real Greek gyros.
