Greek Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki And Naan Bread

These Greek Chicken Gyros With Tzatziki is so amazing, bursting with flavors, starting with marinating the chicken in some greek seasoning, grill until tender yet crisp on the outside, then layering on delicious warm Naan bread, Tzatziki, chicken, lettuce, tomato, and red onion. And biting into this omg is so good. Who doesn't love gyros, I think everyone has had a few in their lives, and these are just delicious. I personally love Costco's Tzatziki sauce, it is only 6 dollars, and delicious but also I did put a recipe for homemade, I made is easy on myself and sometimes just purchase pre made, you can use leftover sauce for dipping pita, veggies, put on sandwiches. My entire family will come to the table for this meal, and I will tell you we have a lot of different taste buds in this family, but this is up there with top 10 recipes..
