This recipe was a Sunday lunch special. I love Chicken Cafreal  specially if you are on a diet that incorporates higher proteins as I am following the P90X Fat Burner Diet.  It makes bland chicken very flavorful and enjoyable and you can grill the chicken instead of cooking. Making this recipe, gave me an idea to make chicken gyro may not have a Greek origin but it turned out great.  My son had it as an after school snack. No need of yogurt sauce if you like it spicy.
