Quick Greek-style chicken gyros you can whip up on busy nights in just 20 minutes, these are a family favorite!

Yesterday was Indian, today it’s Greek… we’re all over the place with dinners this week. I don’t know why but lately I’ve been craving anything but a burger. I want bold fun flavors from around the world. My mood for these gyros was most likely prompted by the ah-mazing meal we had in D.C. last week.
