Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki Sauce

1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
4 cloves garlic smashed
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp0% fat plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 large tomato chopped
1/2 small red onion sliced thin
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
4 flatbread (I like Joseph's thin whole wheat pitas to use as wraps)
Tzatziki Sauce
1/2 cup English cucumber peeled, seeded, and finely diced
1/2 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic cloves minced
1/2 Tbsp fresh mint finely chopped

In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, yogurt, and oregano. Transfer mixture to a large resealable bag and add the chicken. Refrigerate for about an hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat grill on medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade. Grill chicken until just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side, or until meat thermometer inserted into the chicken read 160 degrees F. Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before slicing into strips.
Wrap pitas in aluminum foil and place directly on oven rack and heat for 6-8 minutes.

Divide chicken strips evenly among pitas; top each gyro with 1/4 cup tzatziki sauce, tomato slices, red onion slices, and 2 tablespoons feta. Wrap aluminum foil around gyro, cut in half, and serve immediately. Yield: 4 servings.
