Easy Chicken Gyros

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

These chicken gyros are full of fresh tomatoes and cucumber, creamy tzatziki and tender chicken. Plus, they hardly take any time at all thanks to rotisserie chicken. In about 15 minutes you can have flavorful chicken gyros assembled and ready to enjoy.

With a rotisserie chicken on hand, there’s nothing to cook if you want to make these chicken gyros. It’s just a simple assembly operation that takes just minutes to do:

  • I like to warm the pita in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. Warming them makes them more pliable/wrappable.
  • I like to use cherry or grape tomatoes and, depending on their size, halve or quarter them.
  • For the cucumber, I like to slice them into small sticks instead of round slices. They seem to stay tucked into the pita better.
  • Of course, all of the components can be adjusted to your taste – I like just a little bit of thinly sliced red onion tucked into the gyros.
  • I like a generous dollop of tzatziki on top, but you can also spread some of the sauce on the pita first before you add the other ingredients.

That’s it! Fresh and fast chicken gyros made easy with rotisserie chicken. Make them for dinner or make them for lunch. Either way, they’re delicious.

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. 


  • 6 pita, warmed
  • 12 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 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. Divide the chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, and onion evenly among the pita. 
  2. Top each with the tzatziki sauce, feta, and garnish with the chopped dill and/or mint.
