Bremer Chicken Gyro Sandwich Kit

Gyros are one of my family’s favorite meals to order when we go to restaurants that offer them on the menu. There’s just something so good about seasoned strips of meat sliced off a vertical spit, served with cool tzatziki sauce, soft and chewy pita bread, and fresh toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and lettuce. I have fond memories of eating at a local place called King Gyros as a kid, which is where I got hooked on this Greek specialty.

Aldi sometimes sells traditional gyros kits, and I’ve written about them here before. Gyro meat typically is made from pork, beef, lamb, or even chicken. A lot of gyros you order at a restaurant and most kits you buy at the grocery store are going to contain a mix of beef and lamb, and the meat is dark brown in color.

This year, I noticed Aldi selling chicken gyro kits as a twist on the usual gyro kits. I had to pick up a kit to try with my family.

Bremer Chicken Gyro Sandwich Kit

The Bremer Chicken Gyro Sandwich Kit cost $11.99 at the time of publication. With the ingredients for five sandwiches inside the box, that comes out to about $2.40 per sandwich, which is cheaper than what you’ll pay at any restaurant or fast food place.

This is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store gets one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone until next time, whenever that might be. Aldi doesn’t offer online ordering for products that are not in stock at your local store.

When this is in stock, you’ll find it in the Aldi Find freezer aisle. This is a product of the U.S.

The kit comes with:

  • 16 ounces of fully cooked gyros slices
  • 8 ounces of tzatziki sauce
  • 14 ounces or 5 pieces of pita bread

When you open the box, everything is packaged separately in plastic. One thing that is different about this kit compared to previous gyros kits at Aldi is that the tzatziki sauce is packaged in a soft plastic pouch instead of a hard plastic container. This probably cuts down on the plastic packaging, which is a good thing. It just means you’ll need to empty the tzatziki pouch into a serving bowl or dish.

What comes in the box: pita bread, chicken gyros slices, and tzatziki sauce.

If you’re looking out for allergens, the chicken gyro slices contain soy. The pitas contain wheat and soy, and the tzatziki sauce contains milk.

This has a fairly lengthy ingredients list that includes some processed ingredients and preservatives. This kit also contains a lot of sodium and fat, so it’s not something to eat every day.

The back of the box has directions for preparing these in a skillet, in the microwave, or in an air fryer.

No matter your heating method, you’ll first need to thaw the kit overnight in your refrigerator.

To heat in a skillet, heat the pita bread at medium heat until warm and soft, about 30-45 seconds per side. If you like your bread to be golden brown, lightly brush it with veggie oil or cooking spray on both sides prior to heating. For the gyro slices, heat them on medium heat for about 15-20 seconds per side. Gyro slices are precooked, so avoid overcooking while heating.

To heat in the microwave, cook the bread for 15 seconds per piece or until it is warm and soft. For the gyro slices, microwave six slices at a time on a microwave-safe dish loosely covered with a paper towel for approximately 30-45 seconds or until warm. For more than six slices, add 15 seconds to cooking time per additional serving.

To heat in the air fryer, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Separate chicken gyro slices and place four to five slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Cook for 1 minute. Remove the chicken slices and place one pita bread on the bottom of the air fryer basket, and then put the chicken slices on top of the pita bread. Cook the pita and chicken slices for 2 minutes.

Once the pita bread and meat slices are heated, the directions say to place one piece of bread flat on a plate, and add six slices of warmed meat. (Note: my kit only contained 25 slices of chicken, which comes out to five pieces per sandwich. This is an issue with the other gyros kits Aldi sells as well. Fortunately, it’s still enough meat to make a good-sized sandwich.) Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoons of tzatziki sauce on top of the meat. Garnish with thin tomato wedges and sliced onion (fresh veggies not included in the kit). Then serve.

One of our gyros. I used sliced grape tomatoes instead of larger tomato slices or wedges, and I didn’t have any fresh onions.

I always heat gyro kits on my stovetop. I warm the pita bread on a flat griddle that goes over one burner, and I warm the meat strips on a two-burner griddle that allows me to fit a lot more food on it.

I served these with tomatoes and lettuce. I usually also serve gyros with sliced onions, but I discovered I was out of those just before I served dinner.

The chicken meat strips are well seasoned just like regular beef or lamb gyro meat. The chicken gives it a somewhat milder flavor, but these are still very good and my family happily ate them, with some relatives saying these were as good as traditional gyro meat. The tzatziki sauce is decent, and the pita bread is good. Overall, this was a solid meal.

The Verdict:

The Bremer Chicken Gyro Sandwich Kit is just like the traditional gyros kit Aldi sometimes sells except with chicken. It features fully cooked seasoned chicken strips, pita bread, and tzatziki sauce all packaged in a box that keeps in the freezer until you’re ready to serve it. These are easy to heat up and are as good as gyros you might buy at a restaurant. If you like gyros, pick up a couple of these kits to stash in your freezer.

  1. Too bad it has carrageenan , otherwise i might have considered trying it. That stuff is terrible for your gut

  2. Way too much sodium, 49% of daily value

  3. I didn’t find these very tasty at all. They’re wasn’t much taste to them. I do like the lamb gyros a ton better.

  4. I saw these at Aldi and decided to try them for myself. I ate on them all week at work. I found them to be extremely easy to prepare as well as enjoyable. I warmed the pita bread in the microwave, as well as 4 slices of meat then simply spread the sauce on the bottom of the pita, added the meat and then my own lettuce, cucumber and tomato. I highly recommend them and will be doing this again very soon!

  5. Are the Aldi stores ever going to carry these chicken gyros again .? I really want to try them

    • They usually come back around once in a while, but only Aldi knows when. Your best bet is to keep an eye on the weekly ad for upcoming specials.

  6. These are back at Aldi the week of May 1st, 2024, while supplies last.
