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
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
chopped or sliced tomatoes
slivered red onion
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.
