We hinted a couple weeks ago that we’d be delivering a lighter take on our paleo beef gyros. Today we’re delivering it. Here’s our paleo take on traditional chicken gyros. Just like our beef gyros, our chicken gyros are healthy, nutritious and filling. They are a guilt free meal that will keep you fueled throughout the day. Did we mention that they are easy and quick to make?
2 chicken breasts, sliced, preferably less that 1/4″ thick
1/2 onion, diced
1 – 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or coconut oil)
1 teaspoon garlic flakes
1 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon all spice
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 serving Paleo Tzatziki Sauce
1 serving Paleo Garlic Naan Bread
Desired garnish (i.e. lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers)
In a frying pan, heat oil to medium heat.
Add onions and sauté until they are slightly brown, roughly 5 mins.
Reduce to medium-low heat.
Add chicken, garlic, oregano, cumin, allspice, lemon juice, salt and pepper to frying pan.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until meat is cooked through.
To plate: Stuff our “paleo garlic naan bread” with meat mixture, tzatziki sauce and desired garnish.
You’re ready to eat!
That’s all and you end up with a delicious and filling meal. As we promised a lighter fare gyro! We hope you enjoy this delicious, quick and easy meal.
