 Both economical and really easy! 

Gigot Lamb Chops with Paprika

Serves 4 


  • 4 gigot chops, trimmed
  • 1 teasp. smoked paprika
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablesp. olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Selection of stir-fried vegetables to serve i.e. mushrooms, peppers, broccoli, scallions



To Cook

Combine the paprika, garlic, olive oil and seasoning.  Place the chops in a dish and pour over the marinade.  Leave for as long as you have.  15- 20 minutes is perfect for new season lamb.

Heat a pan or barbecue and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until golden.

Heat a little more oil in a wok or large frying pan and stri-fry the vegetables for a couple of minutes.

Serve the chops with the vegetables and your favourite potatoes or some crusty bread. 


Boulangere Potatoes are delicious if you have time – simply layer some thinly sliced potatoes and shallots or onions in a baking dish.  Add seasoning and a few more knobs of butter as you do the layers.  Finish off with some chicken stock.  Bake for 40 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
