  1. Heat grill to high. Put the chops and sliced courgettes on a baking tray, then toss with 1 tbsp olive oil and season. Grill for 3-5 mins, then turn everything over and cook for 5 mins more or until the lamb is cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, cut the onion into thin halfmoon slices and tip into a bowl with another tbsp olive oil and a good squeeze of lemon juice. Leave to marinate.

  3. Tip the chickpeas into a sieve. Pour over boiling water to warm them, then whizz with the remaining oil and half the feta. Add a few tbsps of water to loosen, then season to taste. Serve with the lamb, courgettes and onions, sprinkled with the mint and remaining feta.

Super quick to prepare and really, really delicious and healthy too. I do recommend making the marinated onions first as the flavor gets better the longer they marinate. I think the Feta cheese makes this dish perfect and wouldn't substitute with anything else.

This is one of my favourite dinners! I always use lamb gigots though because normal chops just dont have enough meat on them.

Lovely... used mozzarella instead of feta, worked well, I mashed the chick peas which made it more palatable to my 10 yr old who "does not like those things" she ate em tonight!!
