Lamb and mint are a classic flavor combo, but the beauty of this recipe is that all the elements come together at the same time, creating the perfect, and quick, weeknight dinner.



  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Toss the potatoes and garlic with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a microwave-safe dish. Spread in as even a layer as possible. Add the lemon juice and chicken broth, cover with plastic wrap and microwave 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the potatoes and liquid to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Roast in the oven, uncovered, until the potatoes are light golden and much of the liquid has evaporated, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, season the lamb chops with salt, pepper and the oregano. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil with 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, add the lamb chops and cook, basting occasionally with a large spoon, about 4 minutes per side for medium doneness. Transfer the lamb chops to a plate to rest; tent with foil.
  3. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in another large skillet over medium heat and add the peas. Cook until heated through, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat, season with salt and pepper and stir in the mint.
  4. Divide the lamb chops, potatoes and peas among plates. Serve with lemon wedges.
