So, this week we’ve found an exciting lunch recipe that can still be super convenient to eat on the go: herby chicken gyros!

What you’ll need…
1 large skinless chicken breast
rapeseed oil, for brushing
small garlic clove, crushed
½ tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
10 cm piece cucumber, grated, excess juice squeezed out
2 tbsp chopped mint, plus a few leaves to serve
2 wholemeal pitta breads
2 red or yellow tomatoes, sliced
1 red pepper from a jar (not in oil), deseeded and sliced
What you’ll need to do…
-Cut the chicken breast in half lengthways, then cover with cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten it.
-Brush with some oil, then cover with the garlic, oregano and some pepper.
-Heat a non-stick frying pan and cook the chicken for a few mins each side.
-Meanwhile, mix the yogurt, cucumber and mint to make tzatziki.
-Cut the tops from the pittas along their longest side and stuff with the chicken, tomato, pepper and tzatziki.
-Poke in a few mint leaves to serve.
TIP: If taking to the office for lunch, pack the tzatziki in a separate pot and add just before eating to prevent the pitta going soggy before lunchtime.
