Gyros with a combination of chicken and lamb


When I have to cater for a gathering, my "go-to" meat on a spit is always chicken and lamb mixed gyros. While some people are sceptical of combining lamb and chicken gyros, I assure them that I have done it dozens of times and have never food poisoned anyone!

To ensure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked, grill the gyros on the carving tray for a few minutes after the gyros have been carved. This crisps up the outside even more and adds to the delicious flavour. I've compiled a list of my favourite ingredients, as well as a video tutorial on how to make gyros at home, below. If you're pressed for time, simply bring your rotisserie skewer to the butcher and they'll do it all for you.


  • Chicken thighs

  • Lamb shoulders

  • Salt

  • Cayenne pepper

  • Sweet paprika

  • Chilli flakes

  • Onion powder

  • Fresh Crushed garlic

  • Cumin powder

  • Olive oil

  • Thyme




Using a sharp knife, cut the meat into 1cm thick slices.

Marinate the lamb and chicken separately with the ingredients listed above.

Hot Tip:

  • Alternate the chicken and lamb when putting it onto the skewer so the lamb keeps the chicken moist.
