Remove the lamb from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature. Using paper towels, pat dry chops and discard any bone fragments.

3 Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper in a bowl. Arrange lamb chops in a baking dish. Pour and rub marinade on the lamb. Cover and marinate for half an hour.

Place the potatoes in a single layer in a baking dish. Add ½ cup olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and combine.

Bake for 15 minutes. Then, add stock, toss and bake for 10 more minutes.

Add the lemon juice, toss and bake for 10 more minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through.

7  Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, sauté lamb for 3-4 minutes each side. Remove from heat and rest for 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining lamb chops.

Serve lamb chops with potatoes. Garnish with extra lemon and dried oregano if desired.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584307889277{margin-top: 10px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″ el_width=”60″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/12″ css=”.vc_custom_1589497543296{border-radius: 5px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]NOTES[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

  • You can sprinkle the cooked lamb with extra dried oregano and more lemon juice, for added flavor.
  • For a deeper flavour, marinate lamb chops overnight in the refrigerator.
  • If you like your potatoes extra crispy, broil them for 2 to 3 minutes, at the end of cooking.
  • Garnish potatoes with fresh oregano if you prefer.
