  • 3 Teaspoons Tony’s 30-Minute Chicken Marinade

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice

  • 2 Teaspoons Tomato Paste

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt

  • 5 Cloves Garlic, Minced

  • 2 Tablespoons Onion, Minced

  • 2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder

  • 1 Teaspoon Dill Weed

  • 1 Teaspoon Tony’s BOLD Creole Seasoning, or to Taste

  • 3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt

  • 3/4 Cup Cucumber, Shredded or Diced

  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

  • 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill Weed

  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken thighs, Tony’s Spice N’ Herbs, Tony’s Chicken Marinade, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 teaspoons tomato paste, 1 1/2 tablespoons Greek yogurt, 5 cloves garlic, 2 tablespoons minced onion, 2 teaspoons garlic powder and 1 teaspoon dill weed. Combine well and let chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes, longer for a more intense flavor.
  2. Drizzle a large pan or skillet with extra virgin olive oil and bring pan to medium-high heat. Once hot, add in half of the chicken thighs (if you add them all at once, they won’t brown as well). Cook chicken for about 7 minutes on each side or until fully cooked. Repeat with the rest of the chicken thighs. Let chicken sit for 5 minutes before cutting into slices or cubes.
  3. To make the Tzatziki sauce, combine Tony’s BOLD Seasoning, 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup cucumber, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon dill weed and 4 cloves garlic.
  4. Assemble the gyros by laying out the wraps and adding the sauce, veggies and chicken. Enjoy!
