I was so into this sheet pan mediterranean roasted lamb when I made it a week or so ago.

The weather was cold, it was flurrying outside and the warmth of the oven was a welcome thing as I carefully stood watch making sure to not overcook the lamb loin.

Fast forward to today while writing this on a patio surrounded by desert plants, palms and fountains in Todos Santos, Mexico after eating roadside tacos, margaritas and guacamole for two days and it’s hard to mentally get back in the hearty, winter roasted foods mindset to tell you about this easy sheet pan dinner.

Simple ingredients, one pan and just 20 minutes are all it takes for this sheet pan roasted lamb dinner.

But, I’ll try.

For your sake obviously because I do want you to make this!

This one pan dinner lamb dinner is ready in just 20 minutes and packed with flavor.

I’m late to the game on this sheet pan thing.

Well, late in sharing some recipe ideas with you that is.

Not late to trying this method out because it’s literally how I eat dinner 90% of the time.

Throw some (ok A LOT) of veg on a pan, add a protein and usually some potatoes or other carb, account for varying cook times by adding each element in the right order and boom, you have dinner.

Usually in 15 minutes or less too.

Try this sheet pan chicken and sweet potatoes if that sounds like the perfect dinner prep for you, it’s delicious as well!

Or, this sheet pan turmeric salmon if you’re in the mood for fish.

This sheet pan mediterranean roasted lamb is even better with just 8-10 minutes of roasting needed and everything going on the pan at the same time.

It’s literally foolproof.

This sheet pan mediterranean roasted lamb dinner can't be beat. Ready in just 20 minutes and only one pan to clean up after!

The spice mixture which is chock full of mediterranean flavors like cinnamon, turmeric, allspice, smoked paprika is rubbed not only on the meat but tossed with the tomatoes and chickpeas as well.

The flavors are similar to this Instant Pot coconut pork but in a completely different direction if that even makes sense…

A squeeze of lemon juice and fresh parsley adds some brightness to each bite.

This sheet pan mediterranean roasted lamb is an easy weeknight dinner on the table in just 20 minutes.

After 8 minutes, the lamb is perfectly medium-rare (the only way it should be eaten if you’re asking me but feel free to go longer by a minute or two if you like it more well done), the tomatoes are just starting to burst and the chickpeas turn a nice golden brown on their way to crisping up from the quick roast and high cooking temp.

I know many people think lamb is only a special occasion meat and while I completely disagree (this boneless lamb loin is just as easy to cook as any similar pork, chicken or steak), feel free to use this exact same method with a skirt or sirloin cut beef steak.

It’d work really well with a pork tenderloin too.

I think people feel the same about venison, but this Instant Pot venison roast proves that assumption wrong too!

Get dinner on the table fast with this one pan roasted lamb dinner. Packed with flavorful spices, roasted tomatoes and chickpeas.

I know there are hundreds of recipes on this site but when it comes to dinner, sheet pan meals like this or one skillet meals like Greek shrimp skillet anf creamy skillet turmeric chicken are really how we eat 90% of the time.

Convenience can be tasty!

Now, back to the tacos for me!

Feed the whole family on one pan and in just 20 minutes with this simple sheet pan roasted lamb.

Looking for some substitution ideas with this recipe?

Swap out chickpeas for either turnips or radishes. Both roasted radishes and roasted turnips are a great “faux-potato” option for a carby-like component to the meal!

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

great idea, and yes, I only consider lamb for something like Easter, and certainly never remember using anything less than 5 pots, etc, so thank you for this quick recipe, was happy to see it after it was featured in a recent sheet pan post on foodiecrush!

Thank you! A fan of one pan dinners here. Can you use lamb shoulder? What about skirt steak? Same oven temp and time if lamb shoulder or skirt steak is used?

Both would work, skirt steak would probably be similar in time. Lamb shoulder might be thicker so your best best would be to use a meat thermometer for that.

Hi Gina, Nothing like an easy peasy recipe. We love lamb at our house. Now, about those golden globes of potato? Not found in your list ingredients. I'll assume them to be optional? Now to see if my butcher can find me loin or two. Have a margarita for me.

They're not potatoes, they're the chickpeas in the ingredient list. Unless you're talking about the yellow tomatoes. I used a mix of colored cherry tomatoes.
