Talk about making a flavorful dish - these Chicken Gyro Fries are truly the definition of flavorful. The fries themselves are loaded with garlic and herbs. That alone would be delish. Add to that some feta and tzatziki... incredible. PLUS some Gyro Style Chicken on top that's been marinated and then cooked until slightly crispy... game over. These are the perfect sheet pan style dinner when you just want to go all in on everything in front of you!

Serve this up with slices of lemon to add an extra bit of zip and you're in business!

For the Fries

  • 4-5 large red skinned potatoes cut into wedges
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 3 tablespoons parsley finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano
  • ½ cup crumbled feta
  • ½ cup homemade Tzatziki
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

For the Chicken

  • 2 lemons juiced
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled, smashed, and minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs


For the Chicken

  • In a large zip-top bag, combine the lemon juice, ½ cup olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, oregano and red-pepper flakes. Add the chicken, zip the top of the bag and give it a quick shake to combine. Refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
  • Preheat a cast iron to medium high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill each chicken thigh for 4-5 minutes on each side until done. Remove and set aside to rest.
  • Slice the chicken against the grain into thin strips and transfer back into the skillet and sauté for 2 minutes until just slightly crispy around the edges.

For the Fries

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place the potato wedges, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper in a zip top bag and shake to combine. Transfer the potatoes to a sil-pat lined baking sheet and evenly spread out the wedges. Transfer to the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping once, until evenly baked and golden brown.
  • Whisk remaining olive oil, chopped garlic, parsley and oregano in a large bowl. Add the mixture to the hot fries and toss to combine. Taste and season with extra salt and pepper as needed. Arrange on a platter. Sprinkle with chicken, feta and dollops of tzatziki and serve alongside lemon wedges. Adjust salt as needed.


  • Not only is this meal delicious, it makes a beautiful sharing platter on your table!
  • Definitely use chicken thighs here so your meat doesn't dry out.
