Homemade chicken gyros


  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Cut the onion and the garlic into small pieces and add them to a bowl.
  • Add the cumin, curry, oregano, chili flakes, salt, pepper, olive oil, honey, mustard, and grated ginger. Mix well and set aside.
  • Pound the chicken fillets with a meat tenderizer to make them very thin and soft.
  • Put the chicken fillets into the bowl with the marinade and mix well to cover their whole surface. You can cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 12 hours.
  • Cut the potato in half and thread it onto the souvlaki skewers. Place the cut side of the potato in a baking pan to create a “rotisserie”. 
  • Thread the fillets, one by one, onto the skewers. Cut the peppers into large pieces and place them over the chicken.
  • Cover with parchment paper and aluminum foil, and bake for 3 hours. Uncover and bake for another 30-40 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  • Cut all around the sides of the gyros and put it back into the oven, so that the part you cut turns crispy.

To serve

  • Cut the potatoes into pieces and add them to a fryer. Fry them for 2 minutes, until golden. Remove and add some salt.
  • Spread the gyros on a platter and serve with the fries, the tomato and the onion into slices, and the pitas cut into pieces.
