Lemon Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki and Feta

Lemon Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki and Feta
First it was falafel, then burgers, and now, chicken gyros. This place reeks of a street food fair. Someone get me a curbside cart. And a megaphone. Always a megaphone. [Please come over? My criteria is rigid: all food I make lately must be stuffed inside a buttery flatbread and then wrapped once more in parchment or foil. I simply won’t budge. Daniel likes to remind me we’re not actually eating on the street so there’s no need to sit cross legged on the window ledge and litter on our floor. Such a square, that one. This doughy flatbread is filled with lemon-oregano marinated chicken, chopped tomatoes, thinly sliced red onion, shredded romaine, creamy and cool tzatziki sauce, and crumbled feta. One messy, chin dribbling bite is lemon and bright parsley and garlic and tang. Make it. We can litter and graffiti my wall. Lemon Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki and Feta makes 2 In a medium bowl, whisk together the oregano, thyme, garlic, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil.

Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Chips There are so many things I love about Disney World. The highlight for me is always at night on Main Street watching the fireworks and eating Apple Pie Caramel apples. We bought not ONE but TWO of them, at $8.95 a pop, just to make sure they tasted like the ones I make…and they do. Here’s a refreshing fruit salsa that is perfect for BBQs, baby showers…you name it. Restaurant Style Orange Chicken Alright you guys, seriously, this orange chicken tastes exactly like the best orange chicken you’ve ever had at any restaurant. I was very, very, very skeptical at first because I’ve never fried meat before and I was afraid it would turn out terribly. Kramer was adamant about having me make orange chicken that would remind me him Chinese take-out, though, and I couldn’t let him down!

Mexi-Chicken Roll Ups March 23, 2011 Mexi-Chicken Roll Ups It’s one of those weeks. My vacuum is broken, and my house is in desperate need of a suction. My husband is missing in action for the next few days with work and, wouldn’t you know, Nicholas is home sick with a fever that won’t seem to go away. The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved.

Low and Slow Oven-Roasted Pulled Pork We’re eating classic bbq pulled pork sandwiches dressed with coleslaw, hot sauce and barbecue sauce and served on a freshly made kaiser roll. Happy New Year! As 2009 rolled to a close we decided that rather than staying up late and ringing in the new year we would wake up early and head over to our friends Nicole and Justin’s house for a day long celebration of watching two back-to-back bowl games followed by some serious rocking out (to Rock Band of course). One of the perks of being real-life friends with food bloggers is that you get to eat what they’re cooking! We decided that since Nicole was making some kaiser rolls for her blog, I would make some complimentary pulled pork to go on them. Normally I would have gone crazy and done some untraditional seasoning for the pork roast, but when the time rolled around for me to make the pork I was in a classic, nostalgic kind of mood.

Southwest Ground Beef Casserole I’m always looking for great recipes using ground beef. We usually order a quarter or side of beef, so much of that is turned into ground meat. While we love hamburgers, tacos, and chili, there’s only so many times you want to serve that each month, so new ground beef recipes are always welcome in my kitchen. Green Smoothie for Weight Loss? One of my absolute favorite things is a Green Smoothie. It’s a fast, easy, and delicious way to get a big dose of vitamins and minerals, plus it tastes FANTASTIC!! Don’t let the color’s fool you!! It is sweet and filling – even the kids love it!! They love to name it the “Monster Smoothie” or “Shreck Smoothie” or some other fun name but believe me, kids go crazy for it!! And it’s a great way to sneak in some powerful green nutrition into their diet.

Chicken with Coconut-Lime Peanut Sauce Recipe: Thai, Asian Inspired The Super Bowl is this Sunday and I am finally diverting from my Valentine’s recipes and sharing a dish that would be great alongside all those mini bite appetizers. There have been so many awesome recipes passed around the internet the past few weeks in preparation for the game. Do I even know who is playing, no. Do I know what I will be eating, sure. The Angry Chef's Garlicky Lemon-Pepper Chicken A lot of folks have asked me for this recipe. It’s one of The Angry Chef’s signature dishes, and I was lucky to pry it away from him. This recipe is a dream come true for garlic lovers like me. It’s tart and garlick-y and oh-so-fragrant in all the right ways.

Going Green I loooove me some green juice!! A lot of people start the year off with resolutions to diet, fast, or participate in some kind of detox or cleanse. I actually do this everyday by starting my day with a fabulous green juice. First off, green juice is PACKED with nutrients. It’s like taking the biggest, baddest daily multi ever! There’s no fiber for the body to digest or process so the nutrients are able to be absorbed immediately into the blood stream.

MyGourmetConnection Recipes Pierogi are traditional Polish noodle dumplings, filled with a variety of classic sweet and savory mixtures. For this recipe, we've chosen to make a basic potato-cheese filling and serve them as a side dish topped with sour cream, garlic and chive sauce. Our family recipe, combined with a fairly standard dough preparation method, produces an exceptionally light and tender finished product. The secret? Pinching off portions of dough and rolling them individually to avoid overworking it.

Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!). When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil.
