Souvlaki Chicken Gyro Wrap With Tzatziki Sauce

I am so excited that spring is officially here. This means we can dust off the grill! We absolutely love to grill out, and do so as often as possible! One of our favorite foods in the whole wide world is chicken on the grill. Don’t you love to hear it sizzle and smell that amazing aroma?!

I try to serve healthy meals as often as I can. One of our favorites is my Souvlaki Chicken Gyro Wrap With Tzatziki Sauce. It is packed full of flavor and topped with fresh veggies! It is a big crowd pleaser. When you make this recipe, you are going to want to brush or spray the grill with olive oil. Your chicken may stick if you don’t. After we made this recipe, we found the metal skewers work better, so if you have ‘em, use ‘em.
