Pan-Fried Lamb Chops with Lemon and Thyme


lamb chops

It’s been a while since I’ve shared recipes on the blog as writing my book needed a lot of my time…but it’s delivered now, out in May and I’m back with quick, easy and delicious recipes for all the family.

First up, is lamb chops which might well be my all-time favourite main course in a restaurant, or the ideal Sunday lunch alternative to a roast. Pan-fried lamb chops with thyme is such a fast but flavoursome, protein-heavy dish to rustle up, and the kids love them too.

lamb chops with rosemary


  • Lamb Chop Ribs (as many as you like)
  • Glug of mild olive oil
  • Handful of fresh thyme
  • Fresh lemon
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning.



In a large pan, heat some olive oil over a medium heat. Add the chops (around 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare, 5 for well cooked for kids).

Chop lemon in it’s skin into tiny quarters and add to the oil.

Add the rosemary in the last few minutes of cooking.

Remove from the pan and plate up.

Squeeze fresh lemon over the chops, add salt and pepper and a sprig of fresh thyme.

Enjoy with salad, chips mash…or whatever you fancy!

Let me know if you try it!

    These sound easy and delicious! We haven’t had lamb chops in ages, so I must give them a try 🙂
