      This is a wee bit different from retbalt’s recipe.
      Chicken Gyros II
      2 lbs chicken or turkey breast fillets, very thinly sliced
      1/2 cup plain, unflavored yogurt
      3 tbs lemon juice
      4 cloves of garlic, pressed or finely chopped
      1 tsp cumin
      1 tsp salt
      1 tsp black pepper
      1/2 teaspoon turmeric
      pita bread
      Optional Yogurt Sauce:
      1 cup plain, unflavored yogurt
      2 tbs tahini
      2 tbs lemon juice
      1 or 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
      salt, to taste
      Optional Toppings:
      shredded lettuce
      chopped or sliced tomatoes
      slivered red onion
      chopped cucumber
      chopped olives
      minced chili peppers
      Cut the chicken or turkey fillets into thin strips.

      In a large bowl, combine the yogurt with the lemon juice, garlic and spices. Add the chicken or turkey strips and stir to ensure that all the meat is well-coated. Cover the bowl and marinate in the fridge overnight, or for at least six hours.
      Yogurt Sauce: In a bowl, combine the yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt.

      Cover and refrigerate until needed.
      Grill the meat using a grill basket over very hot coals, until cooked through, but don’t over-cook.
      Stuff or wrap the cooked chicken in pita bread with your choice of toppings and a dollop of yogurt sauce.

      Tasty and easy! I marinated the chicken for a few hours and it was very flavorful, I pounded it out and grilled it.
