It's been a while since I posted one of our family go to recipes, and while preparing this one last night for my hungry mob, I figured it was a tasty dish well worth sharing.
Having a large family, I am always looking for meals that don't need a lot of preparation, and the less pans that are required, even better. This meal ticks all those boxes and appealing to everyone in my family.
One Dish Savory Lamb Chop Bake
Prep 10 minutes
Cooking time 1 hour
* 4 onions cut into wedges
* 750 grams of baby potatoes halved
* 4 carrots quartered
* punnet of cherry tomatoes
* 8 small lamb chops
* 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder
* 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
* 1 clove of crushed garlic
* 1/4 cup tomato paste
* 1 cup chicken stock
* 1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 200 degrees (fan forced).
Place potatoes, carrots and onion into a large baking dish. Add chilli, garlic powder and olive oil and mix together thoroughly making sure all vegetables are coated.
Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Place tomatoes and chops on top of the vegetables and return to oven for a further 15 minutes.
Meanwhile combine stock, crushed garlic and tomato paste stirring well.
Pour over the top of the chops and again return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.
This dish is healthy, filling and satisfying. The fact that is all cooked in one dish is just an added extra bonus.

What is it with kids and their opposing nature when a parent tries to gather them for a photographic memory of a special day ? Is it really such an imposition ? I mean it's not hard, you stand, sit, pose, smile. Thanks we are done and move on. But every single time damn it it's an effort.
Fathers Day this year was no exception.
|The weather was perfect|
|The fathers day photos of my hubby and our sons were not the best this year|
|I don't know where they came from, but seeing these beautiful draft horses taking these folk for a ride|
up our street was something you don''t see everyday
