Grilled Garlic Lemon Yogurt Chicken Gyros

Grilled Lemon Yogurt Chicken Gyros Recipe with Cucumber Sauce

Okay – not Gyros in the strictest sense, but the premise is still there.  I can buy fairly decent Naan bread here – its not NYC Naan, but it’s still pretty good.  I am always looking for yummy things to put on the Naan bread that the whole family will eat.

We had a Grilled Chicken marinated in Yogurt, Lemon, Garlic, Rosemary, salt & Pepper along with veggie fixings and a cucumber sauce.  Pretty tasty.  I served quinoa and brown rice on the side – that was good!
