It’s hard to find anything positive in late awaking. You are in rush, you remember only your strict boss and your heart is almost jumping out of the body. It happened to me once. Another bad thing was that day – I forgot to take my lunch box to work, though I knew that I wouldn’t have time to go out and have it at a café. There was only one way out – to buy something outside, running to work. And I did.

Then I try Greek Chicken Gyros…

That was a van of fast food. The only word I remembered about the biggest thing I bought – “gyros”. It was full of meat and vegetables – just everything I needed for lunch. When I had some time for lunch, at last, I took that gyros out of my bag and I was amazed with its taste. It didn’t taste as usual fast food. I remembered the name of my saving food.

I was looking forward to having weekend. By that time, I searched the internet and there was the recipe of gyros of course. I found it on this source. It was necessary to marinate chicken according to the found recipe and I was even ready to spend sometime for that. It was worth.

As a result…

What did I get in the result? I got unbelievable dish. I can’t call it fast food even, because it is a great dish for a dear company. You can also put it in a lunch box and satisfy the amazing taste at work. Take some time for cooking and get a great dish of Greek cuisine.
