Jerk Chicken Gyros

Last night’s (and tonight’s) dinner. Jerk Chicken Gyros. I normally cook them on the smoker, but my handy-dandy skillet did the trick. I used up the last of my Jerk Seasoning mix, so it’s definitely time to make some more.

Jerk Seasoning:

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Onion Salt

½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika

1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

½ teaspoon Salt

¼ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes

¼ teaspoon Ancho Chile Powder

¼ teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper

¼ teaspoon Cumin

½ teaspoon Cinnamon

¼ teaspoon All Spice

⅛ teaspoon Nutmeg

1 teaspoon Parsley

½ teaspoon Thyme

1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar

2 large Chicken Breasts; cut into strips

1 teaspoon Brown Sugar

1 large Tomato; cored and chopped

1 cup Red Onion; sliced

3 cups Romaine Lettuce; chopped

1 cup Tzatziki Sauce

5 Pita Flatbreads

  1. Mix the jerk seasoning in a large bowl and add the chicken. Toss to coat, cover and chill overnight.
  2. Heat large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat and sear the chicken until cooked through. NOTE: you can cook them in batches if your skillet isn’t large enough to cook all the chicken at once.
  3. Lay out the pita bread and add the chicken, lettuce, onion, tomato and Tzatziki sauce.
  4. Enjoy!
