Preheat oven to 220°C/ 425°F.
Cover and bash chicken breasts to 2-3cm thickness. Add chicken breasts, tablespoon of olive oil, tablespoon of peri peri seasoning, garlic granules and smoked paprika to a large bowl and mix until chicken is coated.
Add french fries to a baking tray and cook in the oven according to packet instructions.
Heat a cast iron griddle and cook the chicken breasts 5-6 mins on each side on a medium heat, until charred, then transfer cast iron griddle to the oven for 5-10 mins, until the chicken is cooked through.
Make the peri peri sauce. Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and cook on a medium heat for 2-4 mins, until hot (heating up the sauce is optional, it also works perfectly served cold).
Make the gyros. Toast the flatbread, spread the yoghurt, thinly slice and add chicken, cherry tomatoes, french fries, chilli jam and drizzle with the peri peri sauce.
