Low-FODMAP Greek Chicken Gyros / Chicken Souvlaki; Gluten-free

Printer Friendly Version

Your waiting is over!  You can enjoy your favorite Greek Chicken Gyros anytime with this simple low-FODMAP Greek Chicken Gyro recipe.  It cooks up beautifully on the grill or in a skillet and is a healthy, tasty and satisfying dinner for the whole family.  You can also use this recipe to make low-FODMAP Chicken Souvlaki.  Just place the chicken on skewers for grilling and serve!

I’m going to come clean about the low-FODMAP Pita situation for this recipe.  I planned to create a recipe of my own that would be the perfect wrap for these low-FODMAP Chicken Gyros.  Unfortunately, it was not a success. So I opted for low-FODMAP flatbread instead, but if you can find low-FODMAP pita near you then enjoy those :).  Meanwhile, I’ll keep trying!

Pair it with my low-FODMAP Tzatziki recipe for the best results. It also goes great with my low-FODMAP lemon rice.
