Street Style Gyros
Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes – 2 hours 20 minutes (includes marinating time)
Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes*
Fast Metabolism tortillas (or sprouted-grain pita halves)
Combine the first ten ingredients (zest through black pepper) in a large bowl. Add the chicken, stir to coat, cover, and marinate in the fridge for an hour or two.
Preheat a grill to medium heat (or preheat your broiler, with the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat). Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill or broil until cooked through, about 8 minutes total, turning once or twice. Serve in Fast Metabolism tortillas or sprouted-grain pita halves with all the fixings.
*For a vegetarian version, combine 2 cups cooked or canned, drained and rinsed chickpeas with the marinade, spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake at 350℉ for 20 minutes.
