Recipe for Cajun Style Gyros

Written by in , , Comments Off on Recipe for Cajun Style Gyros

This variation doesn’t really resemble the original, traditional gyro sandwich, but it’s still fun to it! This could be worth a try if you want to do something different.

Cajun Style Gyro Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 Greek pita bread rounds
  • 1 recipe cajun dip (see below)
  • 3 blackened chicken breast halves, sliced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Dried Greek Oregano

Instructions on How to Prepare Cajun Style Gyros:

Make the pita bread and according to the recipe instructions unless you’re buying them from the store.

To prepare the cajun dip, add 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons tahini, 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning, and 2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro to a food processor and pulse until smooth).

To prepare the blackened chicken, rub 4 chicken breast halves with cajun seasoning and place on a grill that has been set to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook for about 10 minutes on each side, or until it has been coked all th way through.

Place a piece of aluminum foil down on a flat surface and place a slice of pita bread in the center. Spread some of the cajun dip across the middle of the pita bread. Top with chopped onion and tomato and then add some of the blackened chicken. Sprinkle with feta cheese and some dried oregano.

Roll the gyro and wrap it in aluminum foil so it can hold the shape. Repeat until you’ve used up all the pita bread.
