(Simple) Greek Chicken Gyros
Serves: 4 – 6
This is a great lunch, so simple, fresh and healthy.
Marinate the chicken overnight and heat up the grill; a glass of cold white and a bowl of the salad on the side. By the pool, the boys loved it; everyone loved it.
A totally no-complaints lunch.
In fact, whatever the opposite of no-complaints is.
