Greek-Style Lamb Chops Recipe


  • 8 lamb chops
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


Marinate the Lamb Chops:

  • In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, dried rosemary, paprika, salt, and pepper to create the marinade.
  • Place the lamb chops in a shallow dish and rub them with the marinade, ensuring each chop is well-coated.
  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight to let the flavors penetrate the meat.

Preheat the Grill or Oven:

  • Preheat your grill or oven to medium-high heat.

Grill or Roast the Lamb Chops:

  • If using a grill, brush the grates with oil to prevent sticking. Place the marinated lamb chops on the grill and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust the time according to your preferred doneness.
  • If using an oven, preheat it to 400°F (200°C). Place the marinated lamb chops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and roast for approximately 15-20 minutes or until cooked to your liking.

Baste with Lemon Juice:

  • During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the lamb chops with the freshly squeezed lemon juice. This adds a zesty flavor and helps keep the meat moist.

Garnish and Serve:

  • Once the lamb chops are cooked to your desired level of doneness, remove them from the grill or oven.
  • Sprinkle the chops with fresh chopped parsley for a burst of color and flavor.
  • Serve the Greek-style lamb chops hot with lemon wedges on the side.

Side Dish Suggestions:

  • Serve the lamb chops with a side of Greek salad, roasted vegetables, or couscous for a complete Mediterranean-inspired meal.
