I'm so excited to share with you that Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Sing-Along Edition is now available on Digital and the DVD and Blu-Ray edition will be available on October 23rd! AND I'm excited to share this recipe for grilled chicken gyros with a cucumber yogurt sauce. A Greek-inspired dinner for you!
I’m sharing this recipe for grilled chicken gyros so you can make it a movie night at home. Make this easy peasy recipe for a dinner and a Mamma Mia movie night in!
You definitely need to check out the trailer (above)!
I was over the moon when I found out that Cher is in the movie!
Now let’s get into those grilled chicken gyros to snack on while watching the film…
First, we’re going to prep the cucumber yogurt sauce. Cut the cucumber into matchsticks.
Add all of the ingredients for the cucumber yogurt sauce into a small bowl (except for the cucumber).
Whisk it all together.
Add the cucumber.
And then mix it all together with a spoon.
Next, prep the tomatoes and the lettuce for serving.
Mix together the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper, lemon juice and garlic to a large bowl.
Next, take the chicken and poke holes with a fork (all over the chicken).
Cut the chicken into cubes and then place into the marinade and mix together.
Cook the chicken in a grill pan. This makes it this recipe so fast and easy!
After you put together the gyros (I put them in foil to make eating them less messy!), now you’re ready for an awesome dinner and movie night with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! Yay!
I love love this movie…the music, Cher (LOVE her!) and the rest of the cast…I know you'll love it too!
You need to make plans for your Mamma Mia movie night soon! Make this recipe too!
