There’s nothing like a whiff of char to elevate a sandwich from satisfying to scintillating. So it’s worth firing up the barbecue to give these chicken thighs their grill marks before they land on warm naan to become gyro. Dollop each flatbread with tzatziki and top with chunks of tomato, and a lettuce and mint salad. Seal the deal by squeezing the juice from a barbecue-charred lemon over the works.

Grill the chicken & lemon
Heat the BBQ on high, making sure to oil the grill first. Halve the lemon; drizzle the cut-sides with oil and season with a pinch of the spices. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Grill the chicken on the BBQ (or in a grill pan heated with a drizzle of oil on medium-high, partially covered), 4 to 6 min. on one side, until partially cooked. Flip and add the lemon, cut-sides down. Grill, 4 to 6 min., until the chicken* is cooked through and the lemon is charred. Transfer to a cutting board and reserve the grill pan, if using.

Finish & serve
Thinly slice the chicken. Divide the naan between your plates. Spread with the tzatziki. Top with the chicken, tomato and a spoonful of the salad. Squeeze the juice from the remaining lemon over. Serve the remaining salad on the side. Bon appétit!
