Inspired by the rustic, wholesome ingredients of the Mediterranean, this Lamb Chops with Sautéed Potatoes recipe combines the succulent and juicy meat, with tender potatoes sauteed in butter, and all served alongside a beautifully baked tomato. Each component blends seamlessly to create a harmonious medley of tastes and textures. And this dish not only promises to satisfy your palate but also to brings a nutritious health benefits to you dining table. Perfect for a cosy family dinner or a special gathering, it’s a recipe that celebrates the comforting essence of hearty, home-cooked meals.

Lamb is a fantastic choice for those looking to enrich their diet with high-quality protein and essential nutrients. Rich in vital B vitamins, particularly vitamin B12, lamb helps maintain nerve health and aids in the production of red blood cells. It’s also an excellent source of highly absorbable iron, which is crucial for combating fatigue and supporting overall energy levels.

Furthermore, lamb provides significant amounts of zinc and selenium, minerals that are essential for immune function and antioxidant defence. As the star of the show in this recipe, these lamb chops not only enhance the dish’s flavour, but also contribute to a nutritious meal which supports muscle growth, cognitive function and immune health.

Meanwhile, perfectly complementing the tender and juicy lamb chops, the deliciously buttery sauteed potatoes are a healthy and tasty side. This nutritious addition provides a wealth of health benefits that make them more than just a comfort food. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, which plays a critical role in immune system health, skin integrity and even the absorption of iron from your diet. Potatoes also supply a good amount of potassium, crucial for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.

Rich in fibre, especially when eaten with their skins, potatoes promote healthy digestion and contribute to sustained energy levels by stabilising blood sugar. In this recipe, where potatoes are paired with lamb chops, they add not only a comforting texture and flavour but also enhance the meal’s overall nutritional profile, supporting heart health and aiding in robust digestion.

The baked tomatoes offer a delightful burst of flavour, as well as an array of nutritional benefits. Tomatoes are renowned for their high lycopene content, a powerful antioxidant that gives them their vibrant red colour and helps protect cells from damage. Lycopene has been linked to a reduced risk of certain chronic diseases, including heart disease and some types of cancer.

Moreover, tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C, potassium, and folate, which support heart health, aid in reducing blood pressure, and facilitate cell repair and growth. When baked, tomatoes become even richer in bioavailable nutrients, enhancing their health benefits and adding a rich, concentrated flavour to the dish that complements the savoury lamb and hearty potatoes beautifully.

So, without further ado, lets get on with the recipe itself:



  1. Firstly we need to marinate the lamb chops. In an open container, marinate the chops with a little olive oil, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper and fresh herbs for about 20 minutes.
  2. Once they have been marinating for long enough, remove them from the marinade and grill on both sides at 180°C (356°F) for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Next, lightly score the tomato on the top side in the shape of a cross with a small knife. Then, drizzle it with olive oil, season with salt, pepper and oregano, and bake in the oven at 180°C (356°F) for 10 minutes.
  4. While the tomato is in the oven, cut the baby potatoes in half and sauté them in a pan with butter and olive oil until they turn golden brown. Sprinkle with finely chopped parsley before serving.
  5. Grill the Greek pita and serve.
