Plate Finished Product 

I am not a huge fan of the traditional gyros but I do love chicken gyros. This is a simple dish and can be easily adapted to many food needs. 

For whole30 or Paleo use a lettuce wrap in place of the pita, remove the cheese, & make an approved Tzatziki sauce. You can basically use any type of meat or no meat at all for this recipe. I prefer chicken, steak, or lamb but you can easily do an all veggie gyro as well. You can add or remove any of the toppings for your preference.
