Greek chicken gyros with tzatziki recipe

Greek chicken gyros with tzatziki recipe

Authentic, flavoursome and delicious, these Greek-inspired Gyros are the ultimate camp sharer.

This recipe can be made from scratch at the campsite or prepped ahead of your trip for extra ease. We recommend intensifying the flavours by marinating the chicken overnight at home, but this is just as tasty done at camp!
