A rotisserie chicken makes these chicken gyros a simple assembly operation instead of a cooking project. The soft pitas are filled with tender chicken, fresh tomatoes, cucumber and creamy-cool tzatziki. Use your favorite store-bought tzatziki sauce or make a batch of homemade tzatziki a few hours before you want to serve the gryos. 


  • 12 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 6 pita, warmed
  • 9 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 of English cucumber, seeded and cut into small sticks
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 3/4 cups store-bought or homemade tzatziki sauce
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill and/or mint


  1. Toss the shredded chicken with the lemon juice.
  2. Divide the chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, and onion evenly among the pita. 
  3. Top each with the tzatziki sauce, feta, and garnish with the chopped dill and/or mint.


The nutrition information includes the homemade tzatziki sauce (approximately 1 cup), so if you use store-bought the estimate will vary.
