My favorite recipe. I've been making it for 40 years, and everyone seems to like it. It's fun to make and to serve. Even people who don't like or have never tried lamb like this.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place 1 piece of heavy duty aluminum foil vertically on a work surface and 1 large piece aluminum foil horizontally on top, large enough to cover 1 lamb chop and vegetables..

  • Place 1 lamb chop in the middle of the aluminum foil and rub with 1/2 tablespoon garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary. Repeat with remaining chops.

  • Stack zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and onion on top of each lamb chop. Place 1 tablespoon of butter on top and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Top each with 1 square of feta cheese. Tightly seal each package by wrapping the first piece of foil around the meat and vegetables, followed by the second.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lamb is cooked but still pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Serve each person their own individual parcel.

I made it with what I had on hand (potatoes, onions, and carrots, no cheese). It was fantastic! Read More

Thank you for a very tasty & super easy dish. As I always do with all recipes I slightly altered it to my personal taste. Didn't have foil so used my cast iron pan. Added the same amount of vegetables suggested just for one lamb chop. Left out the butter and cheese. Didn't take very long to cook. Served it over fresh sliced tomatoes. Cooked a 2nd pan of similar veggies in the leftover pan juices for my 2nd dinner. Equally delicious. Read More

I mainly just utilized the cooking technique which was great! I put the lamb on some sliced mushrooms, put some rosemary and salt on top, put on a pad of butter and sliced celery. Baked it and BAM, delicious lamb with a juicy sauce. Perfect for buttered noodles. I put the lamb on a bed of arugula and it was great! Even my 4 & 2 year old liked it! Read More
