One of my favorite ways to use this spice mix is when I make Mediterranean Chicken. This chicken goes great into chicken salad, wraps, and sandwiches!
Mediterranean food is so delicious and some of my very favorites foods. I just love olives, feta cheese, the spices, pitas. It’s all so tasty! Gyros are one of my all-time favorite recipes. A couple of years ago, I couldn’t find a decent gyro in town. So I decided to make my own.
My lamb gyros recipe turned out really well. The boys and my husband absolutely love them! I even made the tzatziki sauce to go with it. I just love the yogurt and cucumber based cream sauce. Many of the recipes I’ve included below, don’t use the spice mix. However, a couple of them do.
You could add this spice mix to many recipes though like those beef pitas would be great with this Mediterranean spice mix!
- Lemon Herb Mediterranean Chicken
- Mediterranean Chicken
- Double-Duty Chicken with Olives & Artichokes
- Greek Beef Pitas
- Spanakopita Pinwheels

- Quick and Easy Baklava Squares
