  • Step 1

    Dice the chicken thighs into small chunks. Add to a large bowl.

  • Step 2

    Grate the garlic and chilli into the bowl. Add 3 teaspoons of oregano, the zest of a lemon, 3 tablespoons of yogurt and salt and pepper. Rub together and cover with clingfilm (plastic wrap). Put in the fridge to marinade for 15 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Tzatziki time. Pour the rest of the yogurt into another bowl. Chuck in a finely chopped small bunch of mint, the juice of the lemon and a grated cucumber (squeeze out the grated cucumber to remove any excess liquid). Season well and mix it all together.

  • Step 4

    Tomato salsa time. Deseed and finely chop the tomatoes. Add to a bowl with 2–3 teaspoons of dried oregano, salt, pepper and olive oil.

  • Step 5

    Finely chop the lettuce.

  • Step 6

    Put a griddle pan over a medium–high heat. Once it is hot, add your chicken chunks. They’ll need 3 minutes on each side.

  • Step 7

    Warm the pittas in a toaster or in the microwave.

  • Step 8

    Assemble the gyros by adding the chicken, lettuce, salsa and tzatziki to the pittas and rolling them up. Tuck in!
