Low-FODMAP Greek Chicken Gyros / Chicken Souvlaki; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

Your waiting is over!  You can enjoy your favorite Greek Chicken Gyros anytime with this simple low-FODMAP Greek Chicken Gyro recipe.  It cooks up beautifully on the grill or in a skillet and is a healthy, tasty and satisfying dinner for the whole family.  You can also use this recipe to make low-FODMAP Chicken Souvlaki.  Just place the chicken on skewers for grilling and serve!

I’m going to come clean about the low-FODMAP Pita situation for this recipe.  I planned to create a recipe of my own that would be the perfect wrap for these low-FODMAP Chicken Gyros.  Unfortunately, it was not a success. So I opted for low-FODMAP flatbread instead, but if you can find low-FODMAP pita near you then enjoy those :).  Meanwhile, I’ll keep trying!

Pair it with my low-FODMAP Tzatziki recipe for the best results. It also goes great with my low-FODMAP lemon rice.

  1. Deliscious!

    We made this for dinner tonight and everyone enjoyed it! (And that’s challenging with 5 kids, all with different tastes!) Most gyros recipes have lots of garlic and cucumber -both of which I’m allergic to. I used your recipe, along with your recipe for tzatziki (without the cucumber) and lemon rice…the whole meal came together great! Thank you!

  2. Delicious and easy

    I’ve made this twice now and it’s so yummy and easy to make. Instead of garlic infused oil I just used olive oil and minced garlic cloves. Thanks!

    1. Hi Nora,
      Glad you enjoyed the recipe! We don’t recommend garlic for those following the low-FODMAP diet, unless they have gone through the reintroduction phase. However, we are happy that you are able to tolerate it. Have a great day!
