Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

Who needs a diet?

I’m not really sure why it took my roommate and me two years to make chicken gyros since he’s Greek and makes tzatziki sauce all the time (while zealously holding on to a secret family recipe for it). The tzatziki requires plain yogurt, since fat free versions tend to have more liquid, which doesn’t lead to the right consistency. These gyros are incredibly easy to make – the chicken requires an hour or two to be marinated, but as long as you remember to do that, the rest of the dish should be ready in no time.
