  1. Mix the mint and garlic with 1 tbsp of the oil and some seasoning, then rub all over the chops. Heat a frying pan over a high heat and, holding the chops fat-side down, fry until the fat is golden, around 2 mins, then lie flat and fry for 3 mins either side. Cover with foil and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, put the sweet potatoes in a bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on high for 8 mins.

  3. Put the red onion in the pan you used for the lamb, fry over a medium heat for 3-5 mins, scatter in the paprika, cook for 2 mins, then toss in the sweet potato. Season.

  4. To make the yogurt, mash the feta with a fork, whisk with the yogurt and lemon juice, season well, then add enough water to make it a drizzling consistency. Serve the chops with the sweet potatoes, drizzle over the yogurt and scatter over the mint leaves.

Good recipe, liked the sweet potato & onion & paprika mixture & lemon dressing. The sweet potatoes only needed 4 mins in the microwave and I made the dressing with crème fraiche & lemon juice - no water or feta - as I had this in. Otherwise as recipe.
