Recipe Thursday

Chicken Gyros with Dill Sauce
This recipe is awesome. It's really easy to make and delicious. I often omit the onion, because I'm not a huge fan.

1 cup plain yogurt
3 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 pound boneless chicken breast (cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
1 tsp dried oregano
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 medium onions (thinly sliced)
4 pita rounds, heated
salt & pepper to taste

1. In a small bowl, blend together yogurt, 2 T dill, garlic and 1 T lemon juice. Season with pepper and salt. Set aside.

2. Heat 1 T oil in large skilled on medium/high heat. Add chicken with oregano, 1 T dill, salt and pepper. Saute until browned and cooked.

3. Transfer to a bowl. Add 1 T oil to skillet and saute onions until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

4. Return chicken to skillet. Add 1 T lemon juice. Stir about 2 minutes.

5. Top pita with chicken mixture. Spoon dill sauce over chicken and serve.

I omit the onions because I'm too lazy at the end of cooking the meal. I also make extra dill sauce because it is delightful and tangy.
