Greek Gyro Fries
These Baked Greek Fries with Chicken, Feta & Tzatziki are a delicious, healthy dinner idea with homemade baked French fries and loaded with Mediterranean-inspired spices and toppings!
- 2 chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp freshly squeeze lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 2 Russet potatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp salt
- red onion
- Kalamata olives
- Banana peppers
- fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Marinate chicken breasts by mixing together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and letting sit in a plastic bag with chicken for 10 minutes.
Cook chicken in the oven for 25 minutes in an oven safe dish once ready. Remove from oven and cut into 1-inch cubes once cooled a bit. Chicken can be made up to a day or two in advance so all you have to do is make the fries fresh and top them with chicken and veggies.
While chicken is marinating/baking, wash potatoes and cut them into relatively thin (about 1/2 inch thick) fries using a sharp knife or mandolin.
Soak fries in water and rinse away starch, then dry with a clean towel and place into large bowl. Toss fries with olive oil, chili powder, oregano, parsley and salt and place on oven sheet. Cook in oven for 12 minutes each side, flipping fries once.
While fries are cooking, start prepping your toppings.
Top Greek fries with chicken, your favourite toppings, sprinkle with your fave herbs and spices, then finish with tzatziki/hummus. Serve and enjoy!
