  • Summary

    The marinade for the chicken is so sensational that I use it even when I'm not making Gyros! This is fantastic for entertaining because you can just lay it all out for guests to help themselves. The smell when the chicken is cooking is incredible - you can really smell the oregano. Recipe VIDEO below, MARINADE TIME: Minimum 3 hours
