Chicken Gyro Quesadillas

by Kristen

I have been learning to adapt to meals and use the ingredients.   (When we wanted our favorite chicken gyro dinner, we opted for these delicious chicken gyro quesadillas instead because we didn’t want to make an unnecessary trip to the store.

I might just love these chicken gyro quesadillas better than the kind I make with pita bread!   I LOVE how quesadillas are crunchy and melty!  Plus, they take just minutes to make!  I dunked these chicken gyro quesadillas in tzatziki sauce.  Amazing!

Here is what you need for Chicken Gyro Quesadillas 

Flour tortillas– or you can use corn if you’re gluten-free.

Mozzarella cheese or you can use a cheese of your choice.


Olive Oil

Greek Seasoning

Tzatziki Sauce: (Dillweed, Greek Yogurt, Cucumber, onion powder, and lemon juice

And garnishes: tomato, lettuce, onions, and cucumber.

And that’s it!

I made my Instant Pot Chicken Gyro filling for these quesadillas.
