Tzatziki Sauce with Dill

After you have made your gyro seasoning, make your Tzatziki sauce. 

Slice your cucumbers in half and scrape out all the watery seeds.

Place the cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor and blend it all together.

Place the sauce in the refrigerator to chill and move on to cooking your chicken.  

Can you freeze tzatziki? 
Yes, you can freeze tzatziki, but it might change in texture once thawed. The yogurt can separate and become a bit watery, altering the overall consistency. However, if you’re okay with the texture change, freezing tzatziki can be a convenient way to preserve it for longer periods. Just be sure to store it in an airtight container, leaving a little space at the top to account for expansion, and thaw it slowly in the refrigerator when you’re ready to use it again.

Cooking Chicken Gyros

Cut your chicken into bite-sized pieces or strips. Heat some oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken and cook 3-5 minutes.  

Add Mediterranean seasoning and mix well. Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through. Set the chicken aside to let it cool just a bit.

Now you are ready to assemble your gyro! Lay your pita on a clean surface and add the chicken, onion, pepper, and any other optional ingredients you would like.
