Pressure-Cooker Shredded Chicken Gyros
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 10 min.
I noticed a sour taste as well as another reviewer. I used the leftover chicken in a pasta dish with artichokes and the flavour seemed to work better.
I had high hopes for this recipe as we love gyros, even being puzzled by the use of vinegar and lemon juice since we don't ever recall the gyros we've eaten tasting like there was vinegar or lemon juice in the ingredients. After it cooked I tasted the sauce and all I could taste was sour! I salvaged the chicken to use in another recipe and am dumping the sauce. I'm curious how the other reviewers felt about the sauce since they used the same ingredients I did. I will look elsewhere for a more traditional gyro recipe.
This was quick and easy and pretty good as well! This chicken pairs really nicely with tzatziki (or failing that, the cucumber-ranch yogurt dressing) for some really nice gyros. I used frozen chicken and cooked on high for 10 minutes, but that's the only change I made to the recipe. I would make it again, but I don't think it will be a regular.
These were just OK—it was the Tzatziki Sauce that saved these gyros. Just don't have the "wow" factor to go into regular rotation.
We loved this recipe. I used the spices I had in my pantry that included a Penzeys Greek Seasoning and substituted Italian seasoning for the oregano and used flour tortillas and it was just fine. I would have been happy to have eaten this at a restaurant and so easy to throw this together in the instant pot. Dinner is quick and very tasty.
This recipe was so easy to make and my husband boys loved it. My first attempt at making gyros and being my husband is half Greek says a lot that he liked them. I will make my own tzatziki sauce next time around though. It will make it more authentic. ??
