Recipe by: Goody Kitchen
Preheat the oven to 180C. Set a large heatproof baking dish with the oil over a high heat. Brown the lamb on all sides until golden. After 5 minutes, add the red onion, herbs and spices. Pour in the tomatoes, stir together, then cover with foil.
Roast the lamb in the oven for 90 minutes, remove the foil, mix the lamb again, then roast for 30 minutes more.
Sprinkle in the orzo and add the chicken stock. Re-cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes more, adding the tomatoes for the final 15 minutes, until the lamb is tender and the orzo is al dente.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly. Mix the olives, lemon zest and juice, feta, parsley and pine nuts together then sprinkle over the lamb to serve.
