Easy Weeknight Meal: Chicken Gyro Bowl


I stumbled on this recipe one afternoon and without dinner plans that evening I found myself obsessed with the idea and quickly ran to Trader Joe's to get all of the ingredients. We didn't have the time for the crockpot meal but Jeff uses the instant pot for cooking chicken pretty regularly these days, so we gave it a try and were obsessed with the results. I could have this every night I think. If you'd like to see the crockpot recipe, go ahead and check it out right here. If you're unsure about which instant pot to buy, this is the one we have, and we've loved it over the last year or so.


Chicken Gyro Bowl

Ingredients (serves 4 heartily, we had leftovers and it's great!)
For Chicken:
  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast (we actually cooked 3 lbs. just fine!)
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp red wine vinegar
For Garnish:
  • whole wheat pitas
  • crumbled feta cheese
  • cucumbers
  • tomatoes
  • peppers
  • greens - we used the organic herb mix from Trader Joe's
  • additional extra virgin olive oil
  • Trader Joe's tzatziki dip
    Directions:
    1. Place all ingredients for the chicken into the Instant Pot. Set the instant Pot to Manual, High Pressure, for eighteen minutes.
    2. 10 minute natural release, then quick release.
    3. Shred with 2 forks in the liquid
    4. Once shredded, let it stay in the pot for 30 minutes on Warm.
    5. Place all of your garnish options into a bowl, place the Gyro Chicken into the bowl, and top with Trader Joe's tzatziki dip and/or extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy!
