Gyros in Ajvar Sauce

I have been asked many times to share this recipe. It is not very low in fat, but it’s delicious!

You will need fresh chicken breast, fresh mushrooms, red pepper, beef broth, Greek seasoning, Ajvar, olive oil, whipping cream, table cream, white wine, garlic, corn starch and cheese. You can take mild Ajvar or the hot version. I took hot Ajvar, and it was just perfect. Not too hot.

The first thing to do is marinate the meat. Cut chicken breast in stripes. Mix with grated garlic, olive oil and Greek seasoning. Let it rest for 30 min. The meat can be marinated a day in adance. Then keep in the fridge.

Cut the pepper in cubes, mushrooms in slices.

Heat 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil in a skillet on high heat. Add marinated chicken and cook until it’s brown. Put the chicken in a baking dish.

Add 2 tbs. of olive oil to the skillet. Add peppers. Cook on medium heat for 5 min.

Put the peppers in the baking dish.

Add again 2 tbsp. of olive oil to the skillet and cook the mushrooms until they are brown. Put them on top of the peppers.

Heat 1 tbs of olive oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and let it cook for 1 minute. Add white wine and let it cook for 2 min.

Add Ajvar sauce.

And whipping cream, table cream and beef broth.

Whisk the corn starch with whipping cream. Add to thicken the sauce.

Let it cook until it boils up. Add salt and pepper if needed.

Pour the sauce over the meat and vegetables.

Put grated cheese on top and bake on 350 Fahrenheit for 30 min.
