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!!
