Here's a change of pace for you. Well at least it was for me. I have had this cook on my list of to do's for some time. It contains cucumbers in the recipe and I am not a cucumber fan so I put it off. Shocked I figured today was as good as any day to try a cook with cucumbers.

So here it is.. Grilled Chicken Gyros with an authentic Greek Tzatziki sauce. This is the sauce that has the cucumbers. The marinade for the chicken is a white wine vinegar based marinade with smoked paprika, oregano and pepper. I loved the flavor of the chicken. Its a quick marinade. One hour or two no more or the flavor will be too strong. All in all the Gyros were delicious even though I could have done without the cucumbers.

Thanks for viewing!
