Total Time 2 hours 30 minutes


  • 2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs 


  • ½ cups greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar

Tzatziki sauce

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh mint
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil


  • Red onion
  • Parsley
  • Tomato


  • Start off by making the marinade. In a bowl, add all the ingredients for the marinade, then slice up the chicken thighs into strips,( about 3 strips per thigh). Add those to the bowl where the marinade is and combine thoroughly. Then place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • While they are marinating, slice up the red onion, tomatoes, and chop up the parsley.
  • Now, let’s made the sauce! Split the cucumber in half, scrape the seeds with a spoon and grate the cucumber with your grater. Squeeze out all the water before adding the grated cucumber to a bowl. Now, add all the other ingredients to the bowl and combine thoroughly to make the sauce. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • After 2 hours, preheat your griddle on sear mode. Sear the chicken flipping every 2 minutes and remove once they hit an internal temperature of 175.
  • Once you remove the chicken, warm up the pita bread at 300 degrees, for about 2 minutes per side.
  • Now let’s assemble! Add sauce to the pita, chicken, more sauce, thin sliced onions, tomato and garnish with parsley. 


You can use boneless skinless chicken breast as a replacement. Cut those into strips as well. I highly recommend a meat thermometer for this cook.
