Everything’s Betta with a Lotta Feta: Air Fryer Baby Lamb Chops with Whipped Feta & Red Potatoes

Updated: Mar 24

Simplicity, flavorful and outstanding. Words that perfectly describe this Greek platter. Air frying is the best way to cook, no if’s, and’s or but’s. It is easy, mess free, and cooks every meal to perfection. So, when hot air is circulating over these rosemary and garlic marinated baby lamb chop lollipops, I am not lying when I say that it is the perfect and easiest way to cook these to juicy tender perfection. Serve them over a bed of this creamy whipped feta and complete the dish by serving seasoned roasted red potatoes alongside. This is a easy week night dinner for the whole family or a stress free dish for when you host.



Fragrant rosemary and garlic mixed with tangy lemon juice, shallots, olive oil, red wine vinegar and spices make these baby lamb chops so so flavorful and succulent. I am drooling just writing this. Between the mix of the Greek marinated chops, whipped feta and seasoned potatoes you can truly enjoy the delicious Mediterranean taste of the dish.


I love this dish because of its simplicity. It is so simple and easy to make, yet it looks fancy! It is truly an easy way to impress your family during the week/weekend or your dinner guests for when you host. The baby lamb can easily get made in minutes, the whipped feta consists of mixing all ingredients and blending and the roasted red potatoes do take the longest, however the oven does all the work for you!



I don’t even know what to say right now....when they say everything is betta with a lotta feta, they ain’t wrong! Take your feta game to a whole new level with this whipped feta recipe. If you’ve never had whipped feta, I promise you it will be life changing. It was for me! The creamy texture is unbelievable and when mixed with other spices and herbs it is unlike anything else!


Crumbled feta is so delicious, but also such a pain. It is a delicious pain if you ask me. If you try to put it on any food items it rolls right off, if you try to stick your fork in it, it crumbles and just falls apart and honestly, no one is going to be taking spoonfuls of feta crumbles with their meal. Am I right or am I right? *Whipped Feta Enters the Room* Ta-da! The answer to solve all of those delicious problems.


The whipped feta in this dish is perfect for dipping, swirling and spreading onto your potatoes and rosemary baby lamb chops. But, in all honesty you can slather it onto everything and anything and it will not disappoint. You will have left overs, so make sure to have some toast and crudités handy because you will want it! Ugh, I am sitting here just thinking about how fabulous this is in so many ways, I can’t even take it! Now, if you‘ll excuse me, I have some whipped feta that needs my attention.
