A quick and easy dinner with a kick of chili and bacon
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 1/2 tbs of panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp of chili stir fry paste (I used garden gourmet) or chopped fresh chili
  • 1 rasher (30g) of short cut bacon, diced
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic (equal to one clove)
  • 1 tbs of crumbled feta
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds, ground and mixed with 3 tsp of water to make an egg substitute (equals about 1/3rd of an egg if you are scaling this up).
  • 135g lamb loin
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).
  2. Spray a skillet with the olive oil spray and heat skillet on the stove on a medium to medium-high heat.
  3. Once skillet is hot add the bacon and garlic and cook for about 4 minutes until the bacon starts to crisp.
  4. Add the chili, crumbled feta and panko crumbs to the skillet and stir so everything is well combined.
  5. Cook for two minutes until the panko crumbs are starting to crisp and the feta is melting.
  6. Take the cooked crust out of the pan and put in a small bowl with the chia seeds.
  7. Let the crust mixture cool slightly then mush it all together with your hands or a spoon - I find I do better with my hands.
  8. Spray a small baking tray with the olive oil spray and pop the lamb loin on the tray.
  9. Take the crust and press on to the lamb loin using either your hands or a spoon.
  10. Put the lamb in the oven and cook to amount desired. I do mine for 10 minutes which is medium rare.
  11. Once cooked, serve with some lovely peas and mashed potato.
