Chicken Gyros & Tzatziki Sauce

When I started eating more clean I was in search for healthier, lighter yet filling lunches to have on the go. I came across these Chicken Gyros & Tzatziki Sauce and realized I had never made my own Gyros before never mind my own Tzatziki Sauce! So I went on a mission with some leftover chicken and was pleasantly surprised! Use the sauce as a dressing or even to marinate chicken in! I had these twice in one week. It was filling and delicious! If your like me and need that side munch of a chip then just cut up some extra red pepper, cucumbers and carrots and you have yourself a healthy lunch!
