  • Heat the grill to a medium heat (I use 150°)
  • Line your grill pan with foil

Gyros Chicken

  • Mix the oil and Gyros spice in a dish or plate large enough for all your chicken. Add the chicken and thoroughly coat with the spice mix on both sides
  • Put the chicken in the grill pan (no wire rack) and cook under the grill for 9-10 minutes (12-14 if the breast are very thick)
  • Turn the chicken and coat with any remaining spice mix
  • Cook for another 8-12 minutes, according to thickness
  • Serve immediately with salad or vegetables.


Everyday Cooks tips:
  • Make your own Gyros Spice Mix to give the level of heat that you like and to make sure you always have it in the cupboard
  • For a speedier dish on the day, prepare the night before and leave in the fridge ready to cook.
