Marinated Greek Lamb Chops with Roast Potatoes (Paidakia) When you buy a good rack of lamb, the sky is the limit on how to best cook it!

Marinated Greek Lamb Chops with Roast Potatoes (Paidakia)

In most restaurants you will find the rack of lamb ‘frenched’, where the rib bones are exposed by cutting off the fat and meat covering them for better presentation. But that’s not how the Greeks like their lamb! Most Greek recipes call for the lamb to be cut into small rib chops, called ‘paidakia’ also called ‘Greek lamb chops’. A rack of lamb is the entire set of ribs (usually 8) and these small ribs (paidakia) can be purchased and served “single cut” (with one rib bone) or “double cut” when too small.

Of course the best option is to grill the paidakia (Greek lamb chops) on a char-coal barbecue, to get them all crispy and smokey. In Greece when preparing Greek lamb chops (paidakia) it is an unwritten rule to add the potatoes in the same pan with the lamb so that they soak in all the juices and aromas from the meat.
