You know how there are those dinners you make over and over again and don’t get sick of? These lamb chop pitas with spinach, feta, and yogurt is definitely one of those dinner in my household.
Little lamb chops cooked with some Greek seasoning and quickly fried in a pan and then sliced and put on a pita with spinach, feta and yogurt are a combination of flavors and a dinner that I make ALL the time, it’s a definite ‘go to’ easy dinner idea. Best part? The whole meal takes less than 20 minutes to make! Sign me up!
Even though the sun doesn’t set until later in the day (yay – at least it’s still light out when I get home) the traffic is so horrible right now getting to-and-from work, that instead of getting those extra sunlight hours to use the natural light for photography or even just enjoying the start of the spring time weather by being outside…I end up being stuck in traffic. It now takes me 45 min + each way. As I mentioned in my faves & life lately post – the only thing getting me through is listening to books on Audible (I’m still always looking for recommendations, so please feel free to leave any good book recs!)
There is major construction happening by this interchange where I live, and it’s supposed to “get worse before it gets better” great news … oh wait, and there’s more….there’s supposed to be construction happening on this same interchange for the next 5 years! It’s not fun, and I have to keep telling myself there’s really nothing I can do about it. Do you get stuck in interminable traffic or have a long commute?
So by the time I get home, it is already pretty late in the evening and I just want to make something super quick. These lamb chop pitas fit the bill perfectly. To make them you’re simply going to fry the lamb chops in some olive oil, and while you’re doing so you’re going to set up the toppings (it is really as unglamorous as opening the fridge and getting out some yogurt, feta, and spinach leaves, bonus points if you have guests coming over and you put the ingredients in little serving bowls) and then you’re going to warm up some pitas and that’s it! Easy, right?
These pitas can also be made with chicken breasts, just substitute the protein in the recipe and you’re all set. This is just one of those super simple recipes that is a go to in our household, hope you enjoy the recipe and try it soon – if you do, I’d love to see a picture of it on social media (I’m always checking out the #sweetphiblog hashtag to see what other readers have made, and love love love seeing all the recreations!
