Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style Wed, 30 June 2010 19:26
Souvlaki Marinade
3/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4 large pita bread rounds

Tzatziki Sauce
1/2 cup seeded, shredded cucumber
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon Greek seasoning
kosher salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a small bowl, mix the balsamic vinaigrette, juice from 1/2 lemon, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over the chicken, seal, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour

Toss the shredded cucumber with 1 teaspoon kosher salt, and allow to sit at least 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt, sour cream, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, rice vinegar, and olive oil. Season with garlic, fresh dill, and Greek seasoning. Squeeze the cucumber to remove any excess water; stir into sauce. Season to taste with kosher salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.

To Freeze: Freeze in freezer safe container. Refrigerate Tzatziki sauce.

To Reheat: Remove chicken from marinade and place on prepared grill. Discard remaining marinade. Cook chicken until juices run clear, about 8 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from heat, and allow to sit about 10 minutes before slicing into thin strips. Place pita rounds on the grill, and cook for about 2 minutes, until warm, turning frequently to avoid burning. Serve with lettuce, onion, tomato, olives, feta cheese and pepperoncini if desired. Serve tzatziki sauce on side.

We LOVED this. Our pita bread was a little dry from the fridge so I put it in a casserole dish with some water at the bottom. I suspended the bread above the water with a small oven proof plate so that they would be warmed and steamed. It totally did the trick. The Tzatziki sauce was awesome! Next time I think I add some grilled onions to the pita too. Nummy!

We loved this one, too. Would be really good with some lettuce, onion, & maybe cucumber in the pita, too. Sauce was very good.
