German Gyros (Döner Kebab) Recipe: This Chicken Sandwich Recipe Rocks

Döner kebab is a seasoned meat kebab that's made on a rotisserie. The meat is stacked, slow cooked and shaved. The shaved meat is used to make sandwiches that are popular street food in Turkey and Germany.

All that meat prep is not easy for a home cook. This easy döner kebab sandwich recipe starts with marinated chicken breast that's quick cooked in a skillet.

Cuisine: Turkish  
Prep Time: 1 hour to overnight to marinate
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast


Sandwich Makings

  • sandwich rolls, flatbread or pita bread
  • tzatziki 
  • red cabbage, finely shredded
  • tomato slices
  • red onion slices

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Slice the chicken breast into vey thin slices. (This is easier if the chicken is partially frozen.) Put the chicken into a plastic zipper food storage bag. 
  2. Combine all the marinade ingredients. Pour it into the bag with the chicken. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least one hour and up to overnight. 
  3. When ready to cook, heat a skillet to high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes. (This may have to be done in two batches so the pan is not overcrowded.) Season with a little salt and pepper.
  4. To assemble the sandwich, spread a layer of tzatziki on the bottom of the bread. Top with the tomato slices, red onion and cabbage. Add a generous layer of the cooked chicken. Top with more tzatziki. Makes 4 sandwiches.
