Chicken Gyro

2 cucumbers, divided
1 1/2 cups Sour Cream
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, divided
5 garlic cloves, minced, divided
1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered
1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced...

1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh oregano, chopped
1 rounded teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 (12-ounces) package naan bread (four 8-inch pieces)
1/2 roast chicken, skin discarded, meat shredded (about 2 1/4 cups) - [whole Rotisserie Chicken] 
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, thinly sliced

Instructions [4-6 servings]
Peel and grate 1 cucumber, then squeeze it with your hands to remove excess water. Stir together the Sour Cream (or Greek Yogurt), 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, one third of garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper to make tzatziki.

Cut remaining cucumber into 1/4-inch pieces and stir together with tomatoes, onion, parsley, (you can also add mint if you like), remaining 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper to make salsa.

Gently simmer 3 Tablespoons oil, oregano, rosemary, remaining garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a small heavy saucepan, stirring constantly, until garlic is fragrant but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Toss chicken in the oil and heat through.

Heat bread for 15-20 seconds, in the microwave.

Spread some of tsatsiki on warm bread and top with chicken and some of the lettuce and salsa. Serve remaining lettuce, salsa, and tzatziki on the side.
