Lamb chops, for me they are one of the easiest things to cook.
My husband loves lamb and goat. Goat is almost impossible to find outside India but there is some delicious variety of lamb I have found in Singapore.
Most of the times when I make lamb chops, I just make a big bowl of salad with it and the meal is done! Life can’t get any easier than that.
As you can see most of my recipes are easy, quick and of course delicious, this one is no less in that list. It’s the easiest lamb chop you can make and trust me you don’t an oven or a grill, just a pan and a gas will do plus it takes only 6-7 minutes to make.
I served these fantastically flavoured lamb chops with hummus, garlic bread and a roasted sweet potato salad.
Lamb chops are really easy to make but some people find it intimidating, but do make this recipe. I am sure you will love it.

- 2 lamb chops
- 2 tsp garlic paste
- 1 tsp chopped thyme (fresh or dried) I used fresh
- 1 tsp chopped rosemary
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp crushed black pepper
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp olive oil for pan frying
Rub the lamb chops with thyme, rosemary, smoked paprika, black pepper and salt (use coarse salt). Pour 1 tsp olive oil and lemon. Mix well and keep it in the fridge for minimum 2 hours.
Heat a frying pan and add 1 tsp oil oil. Add in the marinated lamb chops, press them firmly for 30 seconds, leave it for 3-4 minutes then flip to the other side. Repeat the step and leave for 3-4 minutes. Each side 3-4 minutes will give you medium rare, which is what I and my husband like.
Take it out and put it in a serving plate, rest for a few minutes and then serve.
Serve it with mashed potatoes or roasted potatoes.
