Instant Pot Chicken Gyros

by Angie Ash, EVP I don’t know about you, but I LOVE my Instant Pot, and now that the weather is starting to cool, it’s definitely being used more. These Chicken Gyros are the perfect dish to throw together when you want the cooking trifecta of healthy, satisfying, and easy to make!

Instant Pot Chicken Gyros

  • 3 lbs 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 large onion (thinly sliced)
  • 9 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • juice from 1 large lemon
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • pita bread
  • lettuce for topping (to taste)
  • tomato for topping (chopped, to taste)
  • feta cheese crumbles for topping (to taste)

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 cup 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber (peeled, seeded, and diced into tiny pieces)
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • salt & pepper (to taste)

For the Chicken

  1. Place chicken, onions, garlic, olive oil, oregano, allspice, lemon pepper, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and broth in your Instant Pot.

  2. Cover and press the manual button. Set the timer for 20 minutes. The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure. Once the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for about 10-15 minutes and then move the valve to vent.

  3. Remove the lid. The chicken should be really tender and shreddable. Use a slotted spoon to remove the chicken from the pot and place it on a cutting board. Shred the chicken. If serving immediately, you can then place chicken on the pita and top with Tzatziki and desired toppings. If serving later, place chicken back into the pot and let it marinate in the juices, and keep the pressure cooker on the warm setting. When ready to serve, use a slotted spoon to remove shredded chicken.

For the Tzatziki Sauce

  1. In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, dill, salt, and garlic powder. Stir until combined. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the gyros.
